The other day, I got in my car and noticed that there was a crack in my windshield.
“Ah, nuts,” I thought and drove on my merry way.
But when I told Lefty, he said that he didn’t want me to drive the car until we get it fixed.
That put my mobility to a hault. Today, I pick up Princess Buttercup from school (Lefty drove her there this morning), go grocery shopping–and I guess that’s it, as far as driving goes, but it’s still a lot…I’ve got to have something to cook tonight!
So here’s my devotional thought: You have to take care of the cracks in your heart if you want to move forward in life. If you have a problem, whether it’s with your family, friend, colleague, or whomever else…It’s best to take care of the issue before the crack gets bigger and bigger.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift (Matthew 5:23-24).*”
I had to do something like this yesterday–settle a crack with a friendship. I had a lady a couple of weeks ago and knew that I needed to patch things up. Fortunately, the she was super-gracious to me about the incident. We both came away feeling so much better.
It really is hard to do, but God will give us the strength to swallow our pride.
“I can do all this through Him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13, NIV).*”
