Thursday Three For All
While the cynic in me roars that the employees are only so welcoming because they’re being paid to or because we paid a pretty penny to walk down Main Street, the Christian in me whispers: Jesus paid a pretty penny for us too. And while we aren’t being paid per act of kindness, Jesus did tell us to love the folks around us. It seems being over-the-top welcoming, extending hands and smiles and well-wishes to everyone who crosses our paths or walks through our doors or plays on our lawns is the initial, most elemental way of loving them. Of course, the love doesn’t end there, but it’s a start.
Until people realize they are obvious.
If you’re not willing to live through the terrible stage, you’ll never get to the obvious part.
There’s Cruel, and Then There’s Just Plain Sadistic! (via Cheezburger) Ah, how I can relate.
