A Safety Issue

Updated on August 7, 2010

I was listening to the christian radio station on my way to work and heard this little story.

There was a hotel resort on the beach that had rules for the employees. One of the rules was no going bare feet while working. Most of the employees found this hard to follow. They said the carpets in the rooms were soft shag and the sand on the beaches felt so nice. They wanted to know why they had to follow this rule. The company or employer explained that there could be sharp needles in the rugs and there could be glass on the beach. So it was a safety issue. A small minority agreed with the rules.

This short story is similar to following the ten commandments. Some people think they are not necessary but they are put in place for a reason. To keep us safe.

      Hi ama83, Thanks for reading. Have you ever seen the bumper sticker of a bible with the saying? When all else fails read the instructions. I like that one.

      This is true, Sky321. The rules God has given to us are there for a reason, though many people fail to recognize their importance. I believe this is the same for the teachings of the whole Bible. They are meant to guide us and help us avoid troubles in our lives.

      I love the simplicity of your analogy. You are right about all of it..needles in the rug and broken glass on the beach and yes, the Ten Commandments.
