Ok, be honest. You’ve peered into total strangers’ cars before…at least once…right? No? Are you afraid to admit it?
Well, I experienced this today. (Don’t judge me)
Here’s what happened.
I pulled up at Starbucks to get some uninterrupted work done. (yes, I’m one of those people) As I am getting out of my car, a fairly large note on the console of the car next to me caught my eye. The interior was pretty dark so the 3×5 ‘white’ card kind of stood out. Anyway, I noticed hand writing on it. I didn’t want to appear like a total creeper, so here’s what I could make of the note in the 1.497 second glance I took. It was a Bible verse, including the referance. It might have been from Romans. (No, I did not take this picture with my phone. Who do you think I am?)
Here are 3 things I learned from this moment:
1. If you look close enough, you will find evidence of other believers around you every day. This made me smile.
2. Similar to this person, don’t be afraid to make your faith visible in public. Who knows who you will encourage… even unintentionally.
3. Refrain from trying to figure out whose car it is while you are sitting in Starbucks. It will drive you crazy.
Important tip: I do not advise looking into stangers cars. However, if you do, be sure there isn’t anyone sitting in the back seat before you take second glances inside the vehicle. #AwkwardMoment
