My friend Charlie is a retired policeman. He and his wife Heather came to visit us recently. As I drove us around that weekend, I found myself being extra cautious with this former lawman riding shotgun. I was continually saying to myself things like: “Be sure to come to a complete stop.” “Make sure you don’t weave across the line.” “Don’t go over the speed limit.” “Am I too close to the car in front of me?”
It sure does improve your driving if you are constantly aware of an authoritative figure who might be evaluating your performance.
Perhaps we would have fewer mishaps on the road of life if we were more cognizant of God’s presence with us.
“Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.”—Philippians 4:5.
