You Never Know

April 4, 2019

Read Colossians 3:1-14

          "As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothes yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other, just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive." Colossians 3:12-13 (NRSV) 

 

          Scott Jaskier, from New York, tells how, after his father died, he took his 86-year old mother to buy groceries. The store was very crowded with people in a hurry. On the way to the checkout counter, a friend of his mother stopped to talk to her and offer condolences. Scott noticed that a woman behind  them was frantic and frustrated because she could not get her shopping cart through the aisle. Scott stepped aside to ease the flow of traffic and allow his mom and her friend to comfort each other. The other shopper sighed and rolled her eyes as she hurried past.

         Mom and her friend didn't realize that they were holding up the line, and the frustrated shopper had no idea that his mom's husband had just passed away. Scott saw a lesson in that moment. A lesson we all can learn. During times when Scott is hurried, he behaved much like that frustrated shopper. I bet most of us have also. We never know what other people are going through in their lives, but showing kindness in every circumstance is a way to reflect Christ to them.

 

Prayer: Dear Father, remind us to be patient, kind, and loving toward others as You are patient with us. Amen.
