RADIO PROGRAM NO. 283 - A Fresh Look at Highway Safety
Questioner: People want to prevent accidents and be safer on the highway, especially on holiday weekends. But assuming that they drive carefully and have their brakes checked, their wheels aligned, and so forth, what more can they do?
Speaker: They can align themselves with that which gives the maximum degree of safety. As important as safety devices are, it's not sensible to overlook human factors—alertness, patience, consideration, for example.
But the aligning that I had in mind is the aligning of one's thoughts with God and with the recognition that everybody really possesses Godlike qualities and can express skill, accuracy, coordination, judgment, courtesy, alertness, patience.
The Bible says (Prov. 1:33), "Whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil." This gives us a new feeling about patience and alertness and the other qualities needed to prevent accidents.
Questioner: I understand a little bit of what is involved in aligning the wheels of a car, but what's involved in aligning our thinking with God?
Speaker: By that I mean being aware of the fact that there is a law of God, a law of good, a law of safety, a law of harmony, operating right here and right now in everybody's human experience. Right where anybody is right this very minute he is under the law of God.
