Advertising Your Vulnerabilities

Gary North once wrote, "Keep your convictions visible and your assets hidden." Wise words in a society polluted with covetousness and envy.

Your family, moreover, represents a precious asset into which you've poured your time and treasure. Putting too much information about them on display could just leave them vulnerable to the orcs out there.

Consider the following excerpt from WNCT9 of Greenville, NC:

Family stick figure decals are on the backs of thousands of car windows representing the parents, children and even the family pets. 

While they may seem harmless, police across the country send a warning message to those who have a series of stickers on their vehicles.

They say thieves and predators are now using bumper stickers and decals to track their next victims. . . .  

Police say if you have your family decal up on your window along with a school bumper sticker or team mascot magnet, you are now displaying how many children you have, where they go to school, and what sports they play.

What's that? Your PROUD of your family and want everyone to know it?

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18
