"And bless that stupid kid, too! Amen!"
You know, if you ask someone about a time they tried to forgive someone for something wrong that was done to them, most often it's a story about traffic. I came to the conclusion that roadways are a very popular place that needs forgiveness. We have to share the road with many strangers, perhaps people we'll never see again. It's easy to swear at and insult people we don't know or perhaps never see again when they do something wrong to us.
I've been cut off by people who stick their finger out the window at me and they were the ones cutting me off. To me, it's very obvious that that person is clearly having a bad day and is taking it out on someone (me) that they don't know. How easy for that to happen!
But God says, "Love thy neighbor." (Mark 12:28) If we all loved each other the way God wants us to, can you imagine what our world would be like? A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind. I suppose that's easier said than done, but if we could replace insults and mean words with prayer, maybe that's a small step that would make a huge difference!
