“Be careful as to what you sign, because you could be signing your life away.”Mrs. Shaunelius L. Sterns
When we are given an application to fill out for work, or when we are signing important papers, do we take the time to read the fine print? Do we take our time to see what is actually being said, and do we ask questions about it when we do not understand what we are reading? For instance, when we are at the bank talking about getting a credit card, or whatever the case may be, they give us pamphlets to read, but there is always fine print at the end of it that we cannot understand. They use terms of words that they can only understand,and when we try to make since of it, we cannot. There is always a catch to something when it comes to credit cards and loans in the like. They tell you what you want to hear, but what they don’t tell you is how much debt you are going to be in paying it back plus the interest. It is always in the fine print. They will ask something like, well did you read the fine print, knowing that we did not read it, and that is where the trouble comes in.
They all sell us on the fact that we need the money, or whatever the case may be, but as soon as a payment is missed, here comes the letters, here comes the collection agencies calling every day. People, we need to read the fine print on everything that we are signing, because we could be signing our lives away and don’t even know it until it is to late.
I know someone that has everything, even cattle on a thousand hills. His name is Jesus Christ. He will never tell us wrong, or lead us astry. All of His promises are yes and amen. He will never write something with fine print that we will not understand. When we want to know something that we do not understand, we can go to Him. When there are times we are struggling, He will make a way for us to come through whatever it is we are struggling with. He is a way maker. When we read God’s Word, we do not have to worry about fine print; it is written plainly for us to see and understand what we are reading. There is nothing false about it. We do not have to worry about being lied to, because God is not a man that He should lie. He will always tell the truth.
Unlike the enemy, He will tell a lie in a minute and make it sound like the truth; that is what happened in the Garden of Eden. He is the reason that there is sin in the world right now! I see used car salesmen as the Devil because they will sell you a car knowing that there is something wrong with it, but will tell you that there is nothing wrong with it just to make a sale, then you take him at his word and buy it, and as soon as it is driven off the lot, about half way down the road you hear something knocking that shouldn’t be. That is money wasted. He is sitting back laughing at you with your money in his pockets. What can you do except take it back, but when you do, he comes with the dreaded words”All Sales are Final.” “You bought it “AS IS”. Then what can you do? Try to take him to small claims court, or try to trade it in some place else that takes used cars?
This is why we need to read the fine print when we are signing anything, because we could be signing our lives away and don’t even know it. We could be signing our souls over to the devil. That is why it is important to put on the full armor of God so we can stand up against the wiles of the devil. He is always looking for someone to destroy, to steal from, and to kill, because that is just who he is; it is what he does, but we are covered in the armor of Jesus Christ, and that is His Healing Blood that He shed for us on Calvary. He took us back from a life of sin, washed us clean so we can live with Him forever more.
Stay prayed up, stay in God’s Holy Word, and Stay Focused On Jesus Christ Our Savior. Amen! No Fine Print , Just Pure Truth!
