Have you ever had to make a hard turn? I am not talking about driving in your car but in life? I had an encounter with a person in line at the bank the other day and I was very upset about it. The person cut ahead of me in the line and said she was there before me. I wanted to tell her off and say but you aren’t here now and cause a big scene but I didn’t. I had to make a hard turn. I let her have her place back in line. I was upset about it and I admittedly let it stew for a few minutes but I knew that it wasn’t something that really mattered. We both got service from the bank tellers and we both went on our separate ways. I struggled with the moment but it was just that, a mere moment. I am still learning about what matters most when living on pitch. It matters how I treat people. It matters how I show the love of Christ. It matters how I live as a believer. It matters when my actions don’t match up with the words I sing. It matters if I don’t spend more time in fellowship and prayer. It does not matter what position I hold or what accomplishments I’ve had. It does not matter how long I have to stand in a line. How we treat people matters, in light of all that’s happening in the world today. So much violence, anger, fear, danger and evil. What matters is how I show God’s love in spite of who’s right or wrong.
Psalm 34:13-14(ESV) Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
