Listening to God

On our trip there was a pier going out into the ocean with this sign posted everywhere:


And yet over and over, we saw kids stand on the signs and do this:



Jump into shallow water for the thrill--and to speed-dial to the big waves:



I found myself wondering how often God tells me not to do something, yet I simply disregard His heed in the busyness of my own pleasure.  I can't see the rocks, so I think they must not exist.  Or, I know they exist, but I think I'm smart enough to avoid them. 


Something to ponder on this beautiful Sunday evening.
