Here's your sign!


This sign awaited us in the hotel room.  
Common sense would tell you that you shouldn't hang anything 
from a fire sprinkler, 
but apparently some people must need this reminder.

I found this article regarding this very thing. 

Clothes hanger causes flooding in dorm By CLINTON LUKENS
A clothes hanger inappropriately hanging from a fire sprinkler was part of the reason for the flood on the third floor of College-University late Saturday, fire department officials confirmed.
Katie Bazz, a freshman majoring in public relations, had hung her shirt on the fire sprinkler in her dorm room. Bazz's friend then walked through the door, knocking the clothes hanger off the sprinkler and breaking the sprinkler seal. Immediately, the fire alarm went off and the sprinkler system went on, soaking Bazz's room. The water then flooded the rest of the floor, affecting 10 other students' dorm rooms.
Often we ignore the basic signs of warning that are given to us. "That doesn't apply to me", can be heard echoing through our minds. Or we tell ourselves that, "It is just merely a suggestion". 

In God's word He has some pretty specific things that are more than just suggestions. 

Of course we first think of the 10 commandments, and Jesus's new command to love God and to love others. But what about showing honor to each other, not causing someone to stumble, to seek first His kingdom? Aren't these just as important?

But Samuel replied, "What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.                             I Samuel 15:22 NLT

Father may we listen and obey! Show us where we have walked in disobedience and redirect our steps.
