Are you old enough to remember the 1965 television series Lost in Space? It followed the adventures of the Robinson family who are lost in their scientific exploration of outer space. June Lockhart starred as the mom. Bill Mumy played Will her young son. In the show, Will is often unaware of the trouble he stumbles into. However, he is usually protected by the expedition’s robot. In one episode the robot waved his arms and cried out, “Danger!” This became the catchphrase, “Danger, Will Robinson!” It is still sometimes used today to warn people who are about to make a mistake
The robot can also help us understand the word admonish, which means to caution or warn, often with instruction. Colossians 3:16 tells us, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” (NIV)
As Christians, we look out for one another. We need to take the teaching of Scripture to heart so we can use it to warn others about the spiritual dangers they may not see. We need to learn the bible’s wisdom so we can share it with others. That’s the meaning of the passage. We teach and admonish one another. Though, we don’t need to wave our arms and cry out “Danger, Will Robinson”!
