Looks like we got us a convoy…

 

Hello (insert name here)!

I want to first thank you for our time together this morning!  It was absolutely wonderful of you to take the lead in our convoy of commuters, all heading to our places of employment.  You really held a steady and sure pace!

I remember back in the day, driving in military convoys throughout the world! The commander’s words to “keep convoy integrity” tight. The constant checking in the rearview mirrors to assure that the person behind me was still in sight and close by.  The speeds were always relegated to the last vehicle’s pace, so as to leave no one behind! Ah, yes…a tight-knit unit we were!

The only slight drawback to our convoy, though, is that WE ARE NOT A CONVOY! We are traffic on a freeway! We are pressing toward a goal, solo, without worry about the fellow behind us!

I want to take a quick minute to just say that I completely support our traffic laws and do take into consideration that 70 means 70.  Believe me, I know that many take 70 as a ‘suggestion’.  And, on occasion, I have taken liberty to adjust my driving speeds a wee-bit faster than the posted signs.  But, that is not to say that 80 is acceptable.  And, neither is 60!

With all that said, my dear slow pace-car driver…I would like to offer you a suggestion;  GET OFF OF THE ROADS!

The string of cars that were bottlenecked behind you were not there to support your make-up applying, breakfast eating, cell phone texting, drive-at-your-leisure morning!  They were there because you are traveling well under the posted speed limits, in the ‘passing lane’, with no one in front of you for well over a mile!

Road rage is all the rage these days!  The unfortunate result from that rage is sometimes horrific violence.  People have such selfish attitudes whilst driving that it can easily enrage others, simply because they have their own selfish attitudes.  Once someone has entered into their vehicle, that metal wrapped around them becomes a cocoon of sorts.  The world outside is of little relevance and that it’s all about “me” and whatever “I” want.

So, let’s have little or no regard for anyone else around!  Who cares if your actions upset the balance of traffic! The balance of humanity!

So, feel free to pat yourself on the back, worry not about anyone else out there, because it’s all about you!  Your freeway.  Your hallway.  You’re the king/queen/prince/princess!  Just do as  you please!  Lead that convoy of unsuspecting travelers at your pace!  We’ll wait!  Stand in the middle of aisle while you’re playing on your phone!  We’ll wait!

I mean, time is not important…it’s not like we are living in the last days, or anything like that!

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (ESV)

Godlessness in the Last Days

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

So, carry on!

See ya on the roads tomorrow!
