Over the years, “The Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch” has sponsored an annual contest of the most absurd warning labels. A few of the top place winners have been: “Do not allow children to play in the dishwasher.” On a bottle of hair coloring: “Do not use as an ice cream topping.” On a cardboard sun shield for a car: “Do not drive with sun shield in place.” On a baby stroller: “Caution: Remove infant before folding for storage.” You might ask why they would make these labels? After all, doesn’t it seem obvious that you shouldn’t use these products in this way? But we all know that someone must have actually tried to do these things that the labels warn about. Even though scripture states the obvious, some people have trouble accepting it, not doing things God’s way but in what seems right to them. In this sermon from Romans chapter 11, we find a warning label, but along with that warning we will find hope and assurance.
