Donít Laugh It Off

Driving a huge truck over the icy roads of northern Alaska would seem to be a task that requires a sense of humor. But when one driver heard another driver named Alex laugh often and rather loudly over the truck-to-truck communication system, he grew irritated. So he made some disparaging remarks about Alex and his good-natured guffaws.

Not long after that, the critical driver lost control of his big rig and ended up in a ditchóup to his axles in snow. And guess who came along the isolated road and saw his predicament? Thatís right. Alex.

So, what would you do? Keep on trucking right past with a hearty laugh at the other guyís trouble? Thatís not what Alex did. He stopped and spent several hours helping dig his critic out. When he was done, he simply said, ďAny opportunity I can have to make amends, Iím happy to do it.Ē And then, of course, he laughed.

What a lesson for all of us. Isnít that what Christ commanded us to do in Luke 6óto help out even those who seem to be our enemies? The next time someone says something about you that you donít like, think of Alexóand donít just laugh it off. Do something positive for that person, and in so doing, you may make a friend.

Doing good to those who hate us,
Lord, is difficult to do;
Help us by Your grace to love them,
Praying they will turn to You. óSper

A good example is the best sermon.
