To assure he didn't drift into a deep sleep, Dali held a key in his hand, placed a plate on the floor below it, and fell asleep. When the key dropped from his hand and clanged against the plate, he'd wake up.
The slipping key alone might have awakened Dali, but he added the plate as a safeguard.
Hebrews 2:1 tells us to pay "careful attention" to Bible teaching "so that we do not drift away."
Careful attention requires more than simply trusting ourselves to stay alert. It requires "warning signals" to wake us should we drift into a deeper sleep.
"Warning Signals"* include:
♥ Reading God's Word. James 1:25♥ Obedience. James 1:22-24
♥ Regular Christian fellowship. Hebrews 10:24-25
♥ Bible study. 2 Timothy 2:15
♥ Prayer. Philippians 4:4-7
Take time today to make sure you have "warning signals" in your life.
