"If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you." Luke 6:29-31
Something was terribly wrong -- i saw too many students and not enough floor. Instead of two classes, four showed up for Book Fair at the same time. One of the (correctly time-arriving) teachers immediately sensed the confusion. She quickly and quietly led her class out and rescheduled for a later visit. A class with class, thank you, Mrs. Peace.
Teachers must juggle their schedules carefully, fitting each day together like a jigsaw puzzle. How easy it would be to detonate when a piece gets moved or taken. But quick adjustments and flexibility is the better choice. Like Mrs. Peace exhibited with her presence and manner... it's more important to have the right attitude than it is to be right.
Lord, the next time someone steps on my toes, i want to follow her example. Let me offer up both feet without whining and be a light for You.
have a thought-filled day!
