The Sign Said Stop

Bible Study MaterialsA short thought by Jack H. Williams which teaches a spiritual lesson by showing a person making excuses to a judge for running a stop sign.

The sign said "STOP". I didn't. So I said to the Judge..."

  • I feel that everyone has the right to choose his own interpretation of this word.

  • My father didn't believe he had to stop. If I were to stop, I would be condemning him.

  • My family has always refused to stop. If that is good enough for them, it is good enough for me.

  • I have gone so long without stopping, I just don't think I can start at this time.

  • My preacher says I don't have to stop.

  • What about those who have never seen the sign?

  • My parents made me stop when I was young, so I just don't do it now.

  • I believe only going is essential. Stopping is optional.

  • How do you know the word really means today what it did when it was written?

  • I'll stop after I get my life straightened out.

  • I'll stop when my wife decides to stop. It would mean more if we did it together.

  • It's nobody else's business what I do!

  • I feel that as long as we are all sincere, your honor, that you will accept us no matter what we do.

The Scripture says "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38). I didn't. So I said to the Judge...
