While on my road trip to Pittsburgh yesterday, a driver in a hurry was causing grief for everyone on I-70. You know the kind of driver I am referring to. The fast lane’s not fast enough, so they go to the slow lane, get as far as they can, then have to wait while all the cars in the fast lane he just passed, go passed him again, so he can return to his spot in the fast lane. Then they weave back and forth behind you (and everyone else in front of you) checking to see why we are ONLY going 75 and not 90mph. He ended up squeezing his Lincoln Town car into some spaces big enough for a Geo Metro and cutting several people off to get to the front of the line….including me.
That’s when I saw it, the little fish magnet proudly displayed on the back of his car. Ugh. I couldn’t help but think how I was not the only one that saw that, thought what I did and shook my head. Don’t worry, God was quick to correct me on my thoughts.
Almost as if he was sitting in the back seat, I felt the spirit say “you don’t have to have a little magnet, or WWJD bracelet on to make people question why you are wearing it based on your actions”. I was reminded that my life should really be one big fish magnet. The way I speak, act, think and live my life are a reflection of Him. I can do just as much damage as that car did yesterday to His name (if not more) through my actions. Colossains 3:17 states
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus…”
May everything I do (including behind the wheel) be all in the name of the Lord Jesus.
