After spending a day directing crews who were parking cars at the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Show, I’ve been reminded of some things about people…
People are followers. Park one car wrong and a hundred more will follow suit. It doesn’t matter how obviously “wrong” it seems, they will follow.
People are sneaky. Apparently, it’s all the rage to conceal handicap placards until triumphantly pulling it out at the last possible moment. It would be easier to openly display the placard, but not nearly as fun…
People are self-centered. Without fail, everyone feels they are the most handicapped, the most elderly or the most in-a-hurry. They all
want deserve the best spot, right?
People need Jesus. Every single one of them. Whether they know it or not. Whether they’re flipping me off or shaking my hand. Whether they’re cussing me out or thanking me. Whether they’re ignoring me or cooperating with me.
No matter what they’re doing or how they’re doing it, they need Jesus.
And that’s why I listen to their lies, ignore their rants and blow off their tantrums. That’s why I spend 13 hours a day for 3 days parking cars… To show them Jesus.
