For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things. 2 Corinthians 2:9
Everything that happens to us always has something that God wants to teach us, so that we never forget it and not to repeat it again, for, if we did, we would go through the same, or something similar, and He wants to look after us. Such is the case of a warning sign where it says “Caution. Broken bridge”. If you passed once and you fell through the bridge, you do not want it to happen to you a second time, and you will be careful the next time you have to pass by that place.
God works just the same way. He warns us, but we hardly ever listen to Him. When things go wrong for us, then we reconsider and we never forget that experience, which makes us be careful for it not to happen to us again.
If we obeyed his Word, we would avoid all these difficult situations. That is why He left it for us in writing; so things do not go wrong for us. Hence, let us pay attention to what it says, for this way our paths will be safe and free of any accident that wants to make us fall into the hands of the evil one.
