So we have all been on that two lane road, it’s dark, and you need headlights. Inevitably, someone is coming the other way with their high beams on and you’re completely blind. You can’t even see where you’re going. I don’t know about you, but my first reaction is to get mad at the person with their high beams on. Maybe even start cussing at them or wish bad things for them, but that’s not what we’re called to do.
We’re called to slow down, find the white line on the side of the road to guide us past that high beam moment. We have those in life, where people create high beam moments for us. In those moments, I hope that we all slow down a bit, and find that white line that is Jesus. (It’s Jesus) who gives us the ability to give them grace, which is the same grace that we received at the cross.
Next time you’re in the car, on a two lane road, and it’s dark, hopefully you think of this message.
