After not having to face rush hour in Southern California for a week I had lost the habit of patience. I don’t think of myself as patient by nature but I acknowledge it as a part of the fruit of the spirit. Fruit grows and needs to be cultivated.
(Galatians 5:22-23 NASB) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.It is time to remind myself that there are drivers who should have never been let out of their cage. There are others who are just having a bad day.
I need to make sure that I do not join them. I do that by reminding myself every morning that I am going out among the “huddled masses, yearning to breathe free” and who feel like narcissistic driving is listed in the First Amendment.
Keep your eyes open and your reflexes in overdrive.
