They still put napkins under a wobbly table.
They just use nicer napkins.
Recently I was made aware of a wealthy family took advantage of someone of lesser means. It was frustrating, because they were “legal” in their actions, but completely inflexible and hurtful in their actions.
I hate when that happens.
Shortly afterwards, Cheryl and I ate in a really nice restaurant. We were on vacation and treated ourselves to a great meal. It was one of those white tablecloth places where we had more than one waiter/waitress.
At the table next to us sat a nice, well-dressed couple, also enjoying a romantic evening. I could tell the couple, especially the man, were struggling with the rocking table. It wobbled whenever he leaned on it.
What did he do?
He leaned over, lifted the table slightly, and stuck a folded napkin underneath the leg. Problem solved.
The two stories working together reminded me:
While some of us may think we are better than others…when it comes to a wobbly table…we are all the same.
My mom used to say, “Everyone puts there pants on one leg at a time.”
I say, “Everyone fixes a wobbly table with a folded napkin.”
God says, “Don’t think you are better than you really are.” (Romans 12:3)
Have you been looking down others who have less than you?
Be honest. We can all be guilty of it at some level. God, continue to mold us into who you want us to be; seeing others as you see them.
