I have a long way to go. I just threw a fit, cursed at and abused a truck driver who was reversing into my car because I refused to move out of the way, so he could make a 10 minutes maneuver, in preference that he’d move aside for me to go on my merry way.
Before it got to this point, the Spirit had prodded me to be the bigger person and reverse and wait. However, having spent the last 45 mins in traffic on a route that normally takes 5, I’d run out of patience. It didn’t make sense to me. But I forgot that he had much less to lose than I did if he had succeeded in bashing my car!
Often, it is hard to do the right thing, when we feel others are doing the wrong thing. But I learnt something, out of my resulting awful witness, that being right with others doesn’t mean I am right with God. I have to be right with God, even when it means that I accept the lower or ‘loser’ status with others. (In much the same way that Christ accepted the lower status, in being crucified, though he had not sinned). At the end of the day, it’s only God’s viewpoint that matters.
