Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. This is the phrase on side mirrors of cars. It’s a great reminder that things behind us can be of great value to pay attention to. Sometimes we can become so focused on what’s right in front of us that we fail to see something behind or beside us that could be helpful or even dangerous.
We have rear view mirrors to help us see what’s behind us but that doesn’t always mean it’s in the past. Sometimes it just means it’s yet to pass us. Vehicles in our rear view often come to the front view; it’s just a matter of time.
How could this be playing out in our life? If what’s behind you were closing in what would it be: an ambulance? Police car? Fire truck? Motorcycle? Limousine?
How often do I check your mirrors when driving? Should you look at life around u any differently when not in the car? How would you look at your life with a rear view mirror from the dinner table? Office desk? School desk? Front yard? Backyard?
16 This is what the LORD says:
Stand by the roadways and look.
Ask about the ancient paths:
Which is the way to what is good?
Then take it
and find rest for yourselves.
But they protested, “We won’t!”
