Why DO we tend to stone others?

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean he was really friendly.

So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined
your car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.

Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
so … Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t .
Life is ten percent what you make it
and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

TODAY’s GOSPEL speaks about Jews about to be stoned by the Jews because of the things he has done, the good ones…They are blinded of their own self-indulgence to their “personal God” and failed to see the God himself who tried every means to make them see and realize HIS love to them and to all people. 

In what way have we attempted to stone Jesus? In what way have we tried to stone the people that we don’t like? We might just be envious of them… Let’s just be ourselves and utilize the gifts that God gives us. If we are given LEMONS then we’ll make LEMONADE out of it….We can’t do something different from it.

  1. Ran across your site while I was searching for some information for our information site, needless to say it’s not all releative nonetheless its bizarre how one can reach a website by chance and find one self perusing something completely different but just as helpful. I am inclined to get distracted a hell of a lot like this.
