Road Blocks Or Right Of Ways?

A hitchhiker, named Reginald Campbell of Las Vegas, Nevada was on his way to visit the Death Valley National Monument. Unfortunately, he could get no one to give him a ride. Becoming angry in his misery, he decided to build a road block when the traffic became sparse. Using sticks and stones, he managed to stop traffic on one side of the road, creating a dangerous situation for himself and others.

How like many of us. Because we may not succeed in what we are doing we erect barriers of blame, to prove ourselves right and others wrong. How unfortunate. Unwilling to see ourselves as we are, and as God sees us, we try to make others responsible for our faults and failures.

God’s Word reminds us to “stop …turning critical eyes on one another. If we must be critical, let us be critical of our own conduct and see that we do nothing to make a brother stumble or fall”.

PRAYER: Father, open our eyes that we might see ourselves as You see us. May we measure ourselves against the standards of Your Word. Help us to rely on Your strength to correct our weaknesses and Your power to overcome our problems. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
