MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY

“Did you see that? The young people these days sure don’t know how to drive.”

“Hey, you stupid driver out there, didn’t you just run a red light. You’re luck I didn’t just take you on that dare.”

“Why, why doesn’t that driver know the Texas law of turning to the right on red.. I’m already late for my appointment.”

“Let’s get this show on the road—that lady doesn’t know how to make anything brief.”

“Wow, husband, can’t say that you love me everyday?”
“Well, wife, why do that. You heard me say that when I married you—I’ll just let you know when I decide anything different!”

“Son, I thought you said you’d be home about 1 hour ago? Can’t you tell time? “

“I can’t believe those young people have to have an early morning service with that sing the chorus at least 7 times music. They just don’t want us around.”

“I can’t go do that rest home service; those old people are about to go anyway and they don’t hardly know what is going on anyway. They won’t even care if I come.”

“I don’t have time to go the Sunday School and church—that’s asking a bit much,”

“Let’s see, God gets 1/10th for a tithe—I’m sure it is after taxes, of course.”

“Let someone else teach that class in church—I’ve done my due.”

The question hangs unanswered in the air:

And whose highway are you on—yours or God’s?

I Chronicles 29:11:
“Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom.”

Very good reminders!! Nice job!

I found quite a few spelling and grammer errors. Those mistakes made it difficult to read. I liked your creativity and your message was very true. Next time have someone read it over before submitting it.

I was just a little confused at first reading through, wondering who was speaking to whom. When I reached the end, I found it didn't really matter because of question. This is really a good thought you had, and I think if had a little more clarity with the charactors it would have been right nice! God bless ya, littlelight

Thanks for the reminder...we do often take our own way, and its often revealed in the little things we say. Good for thought. I enjoyed this!

Creative and different: I like it.

Loved your message....made me realize how critical our words are when we try to control our lives and how encouraging they become when we give God control. Great job!
