When a guy cuts me off in traffic I think “Maybe he just got a call that his child is headed to the hospital.”
When the sales clerk snarls “No, it is NOT on sale.” I smile and gently show her the ad, because perhaps her dog has just died.
When a kid is really mean to my son I hug him and tell him to practice patience and kindness in return. I remind him that the little boy’s parents have recently divorced and he probably feels lost.
Imagine if everyone gave everyone else the benefit of the doubt.
“Get rid of all the bitterness, passion and anger. Instead, be kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving each other, just as God has forgiven you through Christ.” ~ Ephesians 4:31~32
