Battle Cry

I wheeled into the express checkout at grocery store the other day. The woman in front of me had at least 25 items. Sheesh. I looked at the aisle sign, hoping it would reprimand her. I was surprised.

What used to read “15 items or less” now read “about 15 items.” Mission creep. Since people will not obey the rules with common courtesy, change the rules!

It’s all about me. The cry of North American culture.

Remember today that the cry of Christian culture is, “Die to live.” Maybe its corollary is, “It’s all about the common good.”

Think about others today. Act accordingly. Christ has you covered,

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, 
but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.
Philippians 2:3 (NRSV)
