I shouldn’t even tell this! Twice I have picked out a collar for Mr. Gibbs and draped it over the buggy seat bar (since it’s a C day, I should say “cart,” eh?) And twice, I’ve left the collar draped across the bar at the store. At least I didn’t pay for it. If he ever gets loose, no one will know where he lives. I really need to hang the ding dang collar somewhere else so I will get out of the store with it!
I am the master procrastinator; a great starter…it’s the finishing of a project that often gets me. I am making a conscious effort to follow through with what I say I’m going to do. It’s called integrity. There’s so little of it these days. I’ll cover that on the “I” day.
Christians have the weird idea that people need to “clean themselves up” and get saved. I think that’s a little backwards. We come as we are to Christ, allowing Him to “clean” us; that is, change us into what He wants us to be. We can’t tell an addict to quit his addiction (whatever it is!) and come to Jesus. We need to bring Jesus to them…and we can start by being Christ-like ourselves. Stop yelling at fellow drivers, even the ones who cut you off. Don’t be ugly to the cashier who short-changed you. Leave a big tip for the server who messed up your order and brought you what you specifically asked NOT to have! Hold the door open for someone. Help people when you can, and when you see the need. Smile a lot. Never be guilty of shaming someone behind their back. Make a real effort to be courteous. (I’m going to get a mirror so that I can preach to myself!)
