On Monday, April 11, 2022, at 5:00 PM, I had a car appointment to replace front brakes, all tires and get an alignment. Approximately two and a half hours later I was told my appointment had to be reschedule.
The representative apologized for the delay and having to reschedule. I was cordial and told him no problem and understand despite other customers obvious frustration publicly displayed. I was patient with an attitude worthy as a follower of Jesus. (Ephesians 4:1-3)
If the work was done on my first appointment, or perhaps if I had shown a negative attitude like others, it would have cost me the original higher quote. Instead, on my rescheduled day the bill was decreased by $235; praise the Lord. Since my credit card number was in their system, I assumed it cost the same and did not look at my receipt until yesterday. I contribute the $235 blessing to the Lord for my response to the bump of rescheduling.
My car rides so much smoother on the road. In the same matter, our behavior should exemplify a smoother ride on our Christian journey when aligned with God’s Word. I interpreted my blessing as having the Lord’s approval.” (Judges 18:6)
We will have bumps on the Narrow Road to Heaven. However, we must be in alignment in obedience to the Commandments of God for a smoother ride to hear on the Judgment Day “Well done my good and faithful servant…” Just hearing those words will be the greatest saving of our soul and spending eternity in Heaven. This, my friends, money cannot buy.
