This week I was out running errands and a bumper sticker on the car in front of me caught my attention. It said:
“Honk if you love Jesus. Text while you drive if you want to see him!”
Since texting while driving is a pet peeve of mine, I thought the message was powerful (and witty!). I pulled up next to the car to give the driver a “thumbs up,” but he didn’t notice me . . . He was texting!
Bummer! My expectations were crushed! How could he be texting when he obviously thought it was wrong?
So then I started thinking, and I wondered if there are times when my behavior might not align with what I say I believe.
- Have I ever exceeded the speed limit though I believe in following the law?
- Did I once neglect to pick up my dog Tucker’s poop (when it was way up in a bush and no one could see it) though I profess to believe that dog owners should always clean up after their dogs?
Oh, my! No bumper stickers for me!
