Isn't it interesting?

What bugs me might not bug you and vice versa. I’ve made a few notes of recent observations:

People drink Diet Coke with their donut(s) or cake.

People create their own parking spaces when they feel they have too far to walk.

People disregard signs and laws thinking they are either above them or allowed to move outside of them. Those same people get mad when they get a ticket.

Many Caucasian people want to tell people of color to forget the injustices done in the past and live in the future; however, we want to say, “Remember 9/11” and “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

People use words like Caucasian, African American, Latino, or Hispanic to describe one another believing those words make us less prejudice.

I wonder if my Black friends call me their White friend?

Many people resist change. Other people need to try it every now and then.

My mother and daddy taught me not to put my feet on the seat in front of me at the movie theater and not to kick the pew in front of me during church. I don’t think anyone is teaching those lessons anymore.

My grown sons still say, “Yes, ma’am,” and “No, ma’am.” Yet, some people are offended saying that makes them feel old. The same people typically want to talk about how disrespectful the younger generation has become.

Some people want to stake a claim on the wrath side of God while others want to stand firm on the love side of God. Very few people accept God in His entirety. He is both.

The South wants to put down the North saying they aren’t friendly and have liberal morals, but it seems to me that Southerners are a lot angrier than those living in the northern states.

People who curse used to be embarrassed if they slipped and cursed in public. If you haven’t noticed, that’s changed.

Many who still insist on opening a door for a woman out of respect will not allow any woman to speak or teach in their church.

We define ourselves as, “Conservative,” “Liberal,” “Moderate,” and ”Independent” more than we introduce ourselves as, “Christian,” “Believer,” “Servant,” or “a person of faith.”

The majority of people who gripe about the liberal media never turn off their TVs.

I find it interesting that the majority of people standing up for home schooling condemn those who do not attend a church building choosing to worship at home.

I suspect Jesus was on to something when He sent His disciples out two by two, pairing opposite personalities. I suspect He tried to teach that we accomplish more together through commonality than we do arguing our point. Everyone can learn from anyone but each one has to be willing to learn something.

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” Amos 3:3.
