A UNITY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me way inspite of my continuous honking. I was on brink of losing my cool when I noticed the small STICKER on the car’s rear.
“Physically challenged; Please be patient.”
And that changed everything!
I immediately went calm & slowed down. In fact I got a little protective of the car & the driver. I reached work a few minutes late, but it was ok!
And then it struck me....
Would I have been patient if there was no sticker?
Why do we need stickers to be patient with people?
Would we be more patient & kind with others if people had labels pasted on their foreheads?
Labels like ——
“ Lost my job” ,
“Going through a bad divorce” ,
“ Suffering Emotional abuse “ ,
"Lost a loved one”,
“Feeling worthless” ,
“ Financially messed up”..... and more like these!!!!
Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about. The least we can do is be patient & kind.
Let's ponder on the scripture below;
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Ephesians 4:1-6 NKJV
Your Testimony is not complete if you don't respect the invisible labels!
