Bicycle Helmets Keep Us Safe
A bicycle helmet
We depend on the Lord above to save us. Only he can help us, protect us like a shield. Psalm 33:20
When my children were learning how to ride a bike I made them wear a helmet, like this one. Every time I told them to put on their helmet, I heard, “Do I have to?”
“You know why. . .”
“It will protect me if I fall.”
“Do I do it to make you miserable?”
“None of the other kids have to. . . . “
I wasn’t trying to be mean. I just wanted my daughters to be safe.
God’s commandments are like the bicycle helmet. They are meant to protect us. Not to be mean, but to keep us safe.
