Daily Devo...common sense

Most people are born with common sense, however, it appears that some people are born with MORE sense than others!

You can see this by looking at your own children or even your siblings. Even when two or more grow up under the same roof, there will always be that one who chooses to learn the hard way.

I had one or two offsprings like that. They wanted to do things their way. In their time. They didn't believe it would hurt until they felt the pain. They didn't see the danger until they felt the fear. They had common sense, but had a need to push it to the limits.

Often we saw this common sense kick in when we would go on camping trips with our kids. There is something about getting in the woods, getting back to the basics, that would elevate common sense.

(Common sense said "don't get too close to the campfire". Common sense said "Don't stand up in the rowboat".)

Spiritually speaking, some people have lost their common sense. They have gotten away from the basics of Christianity. They are walking close to the edge.

Job was given sound instruction...

"But ask the animals what they think - let them teach you; let the birds tell you what's going on. Put your ear to the earth -learn the basics." -Job 12:7 MSG

The same common sense remains for us - learn the basics and watch God elevate your walk with Him.
