Could be that we were in the last few days of No Shave November or that I usually wear Jean’s, a t shirt, and boots, I can’t be sure.
We were serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless mission a few days before Thanksgiving. I had been fixing plates, walking around, and talking to the guests for over an hour when I stepped outside for a minute.
Upon my return, a fellow volunteer looked me in the eye, put her hand lovingly on my shoulder, and with a deep sense of concern and Christian love asked, “Did you get anything to eat yet, sir?”
My wife and kids, bless their hearts, have not stopped laughing since.
I have been thinking about this a lot since it happened and am wondering if God was giving me a lesson in humility.
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
– Proverbs 11:2 |
