Who’s Wrong?

Do you ever get tired of running into people who do something wrong, but then act
like it is your fault?  Who say something wrong, but then blame you?  I am tired of it.  I try hard to do right.  I try to treat others the way I want to be treated, but I don’t always get the same courtesy.

This seems to be especially true on the road.  Last night I was running an errand, and I went to turn left.  The person in the oncoming lane had a stop sign, I did not.  They ran the stop.  I slammed on the stop_signbrakes to prevent an accident and I honked.  They honked.  Then as I was looking for a parking spot I happen to notice a vehicle close behind me with their bright lights on.  What’s up with them?  I thought. Then it occurred to me that could be the ones I honked at.  I didn’t park.  Instead I started driving.  They followed.  I got on the highway.  They did too.  So I decided to get off the highway and go to the local police department.  In the mean time I dialed 911.  911 confirmed my plan.  As I pulled into the police station they decided to book it out of there.  Unfortunately they got away before the police arrived.

This event, and several others always make me wonder, what are these types of people going to do when they stand before God?  These types being those, whom in their mind, never do anything wrong.  Those whom truly believe the universe revolves around them.  Will they argue with God?  Will they honestly stand there and try to defend themselves, or try to lie to the one who created them?

No.  They won’t be able to do any of that.  They will most likely fall to their knees and not only worship the One True God, but they will have the sickening feeling of how wrong they are, they were, and of the countless people they hurt along the way.

Rom 14:11  Read it for yourself in Scripture: “As I live and breathe,” God says, “every knee will bow before me; Every tongue will tell the honest truth that I and only I am God.” (MSG)

I’m going to try to stop judging others, and try to stop commenting on other’s behavior with my car horn.

“We’re called to be witnesses, not lawyers or Judges.”

“God Himself doesn’t propose to judge a man until
he is dead. So why should you?”

One thought on “Who’s Wrong?

  1. I have always said you can tell a whole lot about a person by the way they drive. And I have plenty of experience with people who not only don’t like to admit they are wrong but deflect it on someone else, either because it’s their fault or they are the “bad guy” for pointing it out. Owning our mistakes is very important. That was one of my early posts.
