Be careful where you find refuge!

A man from Texas says that he had a plan that if he were ever caught out in a tornado or such, he would pull alongside the road and hide in a culvert.  (A culvert is a large pipe used to channel water and is used to allow water to pass underneath a road, railway, or embankment for example.)  The man changed his mind  upon seeing these two photos taken by a Texas Power and Light crew who were putting in lines for an addition to the Hallettsville Airport and found the following in a culvert they were using...


The gator was 18' 2" long.

The rattlesnake roundup totaled 87.

In what might we find "refuge"?

Drugs (illegal or abuse of prescription ones?)

Abuse of alcoholic beverages?

The arms of a married person? (Not our own...)

Porn?

Materialism?

New age philosophies?

People who tell you what you WANT to hear rather than what you NEED to hear?

Escaping with gaming, movies, gambling, shopping, etc.

What we think we find refuge" in can sometimes have the potential to destroy us.
