If one can not run across the bridge, as the sign instructs in the above picture. I’m reasoning that any speed faster than a walk must affect the stability of the bridge. Not a confidence builder when our expectations of bridges are confidence, trust, and belief in their construction. Limitations of bridges are typically stated in maximum weight, not the speed of the person or the speed of the means of transport crossing the bridge.
Faith in the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are also built on confidence, belief, and trust, they are evidence of that which is not seen, see Hebrews 11:1 (ESV). In comparison, we have confidence, belief, and trust in bridges being safe without having prior knowledge of their construction.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (ESV)
Experience is the ultimate test.
I have safely driven over a bridge many times on my journey home from work. Other bridges, I encountered in my travels, have had posted weight limits and in my experience, they have proven to be safe.
I would be less of a person without Jesus Christ in my life. Not that I profess to be perfect and that is why I need Jesus Christ in my life. I trust Him. Simply. Fully. Without reservation.
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58(ESV)
