Drive Nice, Change the World!

Video Summary

We got a kick out of this traffic circle in Amesbury, Massachusetts. We sat and ate Italian food and were endlessly entertained watching people try to figure it out and not wreck.

In California, this would be a world war. But to us it seems like people on the East Coast are nicer drivers. They flash their lights and let you in, or let you cross the street.

It's amazing how much this changes my whole perspective on the world. It feels like a good place to be instead of a war zone.

Anyway, if you're gonna get behind the wheel today, go out of your way to smile and wave and let people go in front of you.

It may not seem like much but it's these tiny little things that save the world.

    Thank you Dr Robertson!
    Growing up in Hawaii, driving had a very different culture than when I moved to CA. I had to readjust when I moved back to Hawaii. I feel like even in Hawaii, people are getting less and less courteous.
    I was struck by a very humbling conviction. Often times I witness people speeding and weaving through traffic. In my mind I think, “Idiot, I hope you crash.” Okay, sometimes it wasn’t kept in my mind, but I never meant it in a way that wished harm. Last week a 17yo boy was speeding and weaving through traffic to catch up with his friends. He lost control and crashed and it was fatal. My heart sunk. How terrible it is for me to have even suggested someone crash their car in the past. There is no love in that. It was a terribly tragic event that showed me that I need to love those who are driving dangerously. Pray for their safety and the safety of others. Pull over and let them drive by, maybe there is an emergency. I’m sad that it took that fatal crash to teach me that lesson. Love EVERYONE. Great word, Pastor.

      Thanks, Jason! No question: driving is a true test of our faith. I’ve been the angry guy and been convicted about it too. Thanks for the sobering reminder.
