Never argue with a warning marker

The US Naval Institute once reported an incident aboard a battleship on a foggy night. Shortly after dark, a lookout reported, “Light, bearing dead ahead.” The captain ordered a signal to be sent to the bearer of the light ordering it to change course. A signal came back saying “Advise you change course.” The captain sent another signal, saying, “You are on a collision course, you must change course.” The answer came back, “You must change course.” By this time the captain was furious. He signaled, “I’m a battleship. Change course.” Back came the reply, “I’m a lighthouse, you change course.” And they did.
The message is simple. No matter how good you think you are, never argue with a warning marker; especially if it’s one of those that God gives to guide you on the journey of life.
