Eyes On The Road

According to DMV.org, “26% of all car crashes in 2014 involved cell phone use” while driving. In the United States, at least 9 people are killed by a distracted driver and 1,000 people are injured by a distracted driver every single day (“Texting and Driving,” DMV.org, accessed November 28, 2017, https://www.dmv.org/distracted-driving/texting-and-driving.php). Because the use of smartphones and texting are so prevalent, some states and municipalities have now prohibited texting while driving by law. The risk caused by the distraction is too costly to allow. In the same way, living as a single who is fixated on becoming married can also be detrimentally distracting. Although singles can be honest with God, themselves, and others about their desires, they can’t become obsessed with fulfilling those desires on their own terms. They must trust God with his plan for their lives and set their hope on him, not on marriage or dating.
