My house lies a quarter of a mile from Interstate 95 in northern Delaware. Residing in the I-95 corridor, an hour north of Baltimore and hour south of Philadelphia, I regularly travel this busy highway. In recent trips, its seems like the average speed now exceeds the 65 limit by nearly 20 miles per hour. Thus, police officers are often faced with the dilemma of too many vehicles to pull over.
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days, 2 Timothy 3:1.
Perhaps this aggression is a sign of end times. The apostle Paul receives a vision, a glimpse of the moral decline within society. As this culture leaves absolutes for politically correct stances, selfish individuals will continue to commit transgressions against innocent citizens. Subsequently, road rage is causing impatient drivers to take their frustrations out on anyone who infringes upon their lane or space.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 2 Timothy 3:2.
There was a time when driving was a leisure activity, exploring back roads for fun over the weekend. Yet, as a growing number of people are in a hurry, friction leads some to explode emotionally. While there are many prophecies that still need to be fulfilled before the end of days arrives, recent acts of terrorism suggest this isn’t too far off. Before this occurs, may those struggling to make sense of our fallen world slow down enough so that police won’t be overwhelmed with too many vehicles to pull over.
