I am very grateful that I have no super powers. I have many gifts but no super powers. Today’s example was a drive on a “back” road linking my home to my favorite bakery. So much for a fresh start with my sweets habit. It is all residential and a mad/crazy driver was traveling twice the speed limit. He flew past me on the wrong side of the road. There is something annoying about being illegally passed on a narrow road. I wish this driver no harm but I would have loved to drop a cop car between he and me. We all break the rules but I just appreciate when the other guy gets caught. Does that appeal to you? You and I have been wronged at times and no one knows what that other person has done. They seem to get away with it like today’s rushed driver. No harm – no foul. I am grateful that no people or animals were harmed in his rush to beat me to the next signal.
What about the offenses that cost us peace of mind and cause tears? Something is suddenly broken and getting even sounds attractive. Who comes to the rescue if we are not endowed with super powers? Helpful super powers would be to control time and space. How about fly over the person and anonymously drop something in their path. Invisibility would be an assist. Knowing the future would allow us time to control something we want to prevent. (There was a tv show about that.) I would love to be able to read your mind but I believe that God, who has all power, has given us what we need. If we could control other people we would make mistakes. Even God gives room for us to make our own choices and that is the challenge when I want to hurry home to eat a sweet. Expect foul play. Protect whom we can from the crazies. Use our gifts to make life better. No poison darts at people or tires on the road.
