Speed bumps in the Bible

Speed Bumps

In my area, when the local authorities want to discourage motorists from speeding, they place a narrow strip of asphalt across the width of the road. It’s called a speed bump, because it creates a jarring bump if you drive over it too fast. Speed bumps make you slow down and pay attention. Sometimes when we read scripture, we run across passages that have the same effect on our reading as the speed bumps have on our driving.
