In 2019, folks in Boston spent more time in traffic than anyone else in America — just over six days in traffic or an average of 149 hours per Boston commuter.
Driving in traffic is not fun. Sometimes we may choose a short cut to try and save time. Sometimes our feelings get the best of us and we blame others for our misfortune — and this might get us into trouble, emotionally and spiritually. When we face bigger trials, we might go the wrong way so that it will be easier.
Easier is not always better. Will you join me in making the following pledge?
- Next time I’m sitting in traffic, I’ll pray for others and specifically ask God to help other people I know.
- I’ll remember to, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV).
- Keep your eyes on Jesus, study the Bible and get to know Him — then no matter what circumstances you find yourself in, you will have much love, joy and peace.
