As I turned off my car and pulled my keys out of the ignition, I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open. I picked up my computer case and my purse and started for my house, when I heard a man's voice behind me.
"Hello, I am your new neighbor Tom Mitchell," the tall man said and extended his hand.
I had my purse and computer in one hand while extending the other, "Hello, welcome to the neighborhood."
My new neighbor stared at me with a whimsical look, then smiled before he replied, "Wow, now that is what I call a welcome!"
There I stood pants down around my ankles under the bright street light! Well, needless to say I tried to avoid our new neighbor for the longest time.
Note: This is a true story and happened exactly as I have written it. For the longest time I avoided my new neighbor...But God told me to "lighten" up and I realized that it was a matter of pride, and so I let it go.
Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV) Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
