Accidents. It comes with the territory of driving a motorized vehicle down the road. No matter how careful you might be, accidents happen in a matter of seconds. While drunk driving has caused its fair share of traffic collisions, distracted driving is moving up on the scale of the most dangerous actions a driver can do.
The NHTSA's Report "The True Cost of Economic and Societal Impacts of Motor Vehicle Crashes, 2019," (February 2023) indicated that rather than 3,100 deaths per year, distracted driving fatalities were likely in excess of 10,000 per year. Accordingly, the % of traffic fatalities caused by distracted driving was likely to be about 20% as opposed to 10%.
Twenty-nine percent! That may not seem like a lot, but trust me, it is. What do distracted driving and the gods of Egypt have in common? They both take away the attention one needs to give to life! To live while driving, don't drive distracted. To live while in your spiritual life, don't become distracted by the glory, glamour, and pomp of gods that promise much but deliver nothing!
On this my last sermon for 2023 in the Milton Adventist Church, we will be looking at the last god of Egypt. One in which we have already introduced when we discussed the first god of Egypt under the first plague. However, there is a back story that when understood, one is able to sense what God desires to teach and what God desires us to understand today!
Listen, take notes, and answer the call of God to your heart today! For when you do, your life will never be the same!
So, until the next time, this is Pastor Tello remind you that thoughts do change lives!
