No Disturbing the Rocks

Sign says Notice: Do not disturb rocksThis sign amused me when I first saw it, then it got me thinking. I never thought rocks needed protection. Yet some do, don’t they?

The rocks surrounding this sign were large and looked too heavy for anyone to move. It looked like a solid foundation to me. Yet someone must have moved a few of them before if this sign was deemed necessary.

There are people and things that we view as rocks. They appear steady and immovable. They are the person you turn to when things get tough. They are there for you in the darkest night of the soul. They are the values that form who we are and why we do what we do. We all have people and things we think will never change, nor should they.

But this sign was a good reminder for me. People and things do change. We must decide what is important and protect the people and things we deem rock solid and worthy of protection.

At the same time, there are people and values that should change. Discrimination, hate and abuse in the guise of solid rock values should be torn down. It takes a lot of discernment to know the difference.

So take some time to know what is good, clean and pure, and please do not disturb the rocks!
