This morning I did a good deed, I drove my teenage neighbor to school. I didn't do the good deed for recognition-- I did it because she asked nicely and I was available. I don't like being late, and I don't like being in a hurry-- so I tend to follow the speed limit pretty closely.
Apparently, that is not the normal for the roads I was on this morning.
It got me to thinking, do I as a believer in the LORD, have a different view of life than someone who doesn't? I try to live my life in such a way that I feel the Lord, is pleased with me-- I'm not a goody-- goody I do make mistakes-- but I also know what to do when I make mistakes.
My point is this-- do I move at a different pace, because I know that when I pass I'll be with the LORD?-- Do other people--- hurry so much because they are simply afraid that if they don't hurry then --what? What happens if they don't hurry?
This morning Shane ran into the school with his backpack on, and because that is against the rules-- I went into the school walked him back out to the car and then had him walk back into school. He gave me quite a bit of attitude-- he was walking super slow and complaining. So, when I FINALLY got him to the classroom he was still angry. Then he neglected to have me sign a permission slip -- and of course it was my problem-- because I didn't ask to see the permission slip. His teacher was very quick to back me up to tell Shane that --he is the one who needs to bring the permission slip to me... not me ask for something that I didn't know he had! I know that part of his behavior was from his cold that he is fighting, but I also know that he knows better.-- So~ I guess we will find out who is more stubborn. :) I love that his teacher and I are both on the same page. Yipppeeeeee !
