I attended a 20 hour motorcycle certification class. It’s required in the State of Florida. Obviously, how to avoid a collision was among the topics covered. Motorcyclists face unique challenges. Hitting a possum, or any other small object, is no big deal for a car – but can be fatal to motorcyclists. So what do you do when there’s an obstacle is in your path?
DON’T FIXATE ON IT!
Why? Because drivers tend to collide with things they fixate their attention on. OK – maybe you don’t drive a motorcycle, so what’s that got to do with you? Like many states, Florida has a “move over” law. When we see blue lights on the side of the road, we certainly don’t mean any harm, but we’re insanely curious.
The bible has something to say on the subject of fixation.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
I’m not suggesting that we stick our heads in the proverbial sand. I’m suggesting that we take a hint physical and spiritual realities. Let’s unshackle ourselves from the bondage of negativity. I say it this way in a tweet:
That’s what I think. I’m interested in your thoughts. There’s lots of ways to hit me up so let me hear from you.
