Behaving rudely greatly dishonors
Everyone who witnesses the event!
How quickly we recoil, sigh, and wonder
About this folly: “BAD – not heaven-sent!”
Vigorously we start to criticize
Individuals we know nothing of –
Nothing – except the careless way they drive,
Going out of their way so they can shove
Ridiculously cautious SLOW DRIVERS
Unkindly out of their way. Or else they
Do or say something thoughtless, waking ire,
Exhausting patience. “JUST KEEP THEM AWAY,
LORD!!” we pray (“Deliver us!!”), on our knees;
Yet Jesus died for even all of these.
