Although it’s a tradition, it’s not a very safe one.
Every year in the city of Pamplona, Spain, the famous bull run takes place. This is an event where the bulls are allowed to run freely from their holding pen to the city bull ring. This event is so popular now that it is televised and has even been made into a popular app called Running with Friends. (*bull whip snaps* Ole!) Thrill-seekers line the streets and try to race in front of the bulls as a sport. The longer you can stay in front of the bulls, the more “admired” you become. People are hurt every year in this event, but I don’t understand why people continue to do it. Although it’s tradition, it’s not a very safe one. I definitely would be one of the onlookers high above the chaos instead of on of the people on the street.
Is there something in your life that you do repeatedly that gets you into trouble? Maybe lying, stealing, etc.? I struggle with sins too, in fact, we all struggle with sins! However, we can break the cycle by trying to consistently do what God wants us to do. It’s really hard to do, but we are better people for trying. The next time you feel yourself falling back into your bad habits, just think of the bull run. You want to be one of the people in the stands on not on the streets. Good luck! And Happy Sabbath! 🙂
