The Ride...

"Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near." ~Philippians 4:5

 I was taken for a ride on the playground last week
these two cats were behind the wheel....
It was just the three of us....
until we started making some "stops."

 We stopped at McDonald's, Chuck E Cheese, Shipley's, The Ranch and Kiddie Park.
Clearly all of the sugar, fun and giggles made us a magnet for other riders...
within 12 seconds flat we were overflowing with passengers.
It was then I realized two things...
A. Charlie was none too happy about being ousted from the co-pilot seat.

B. What "stops" was I making along my day that enticed other riders? Am I making the most of every opportunity to invite others along the way?

"Use your heads as you live and work among outsiders. Don’t miss a trick. Make the most of every opportunity. Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out." 
~Colossians 4:5,6 

God, Thank You for loving us so well....may we pass it along to others the same way.  

In His Dust,
