Those who are Always in a Rush
guy was driving at 70 miles in a 40 mile zone, when a cop
came behind him with the flashers on. As he parked and stopped,
he could see the cop getting out of his car. Right away the
guy started thinking of excuses to give, as this was not the
first time, he had been in similar situations many times before.
the cop approached him, he said ‘ Hi officer, I guess you
caught me over the limit little bit, I was in a rush to get
home, to be with my wife and kids, you know my younger son
wasn’t feeling too well, when I left home this morning’.
cop said, well I guess so, and started scribbling on his pad.
As minutes went by, he could see from the side-view mirror,
the cop was still scribbling. The guy was wondering why he
hadn’t asked for his driver’s license so far. A few moments
later, the cop came to his window and handed him a folded
paper, and returned back to his car without saying a single
word. The guy started to wonder, how much this ticket is going
to be as he began to un-fold the paper. He was surprised it
was not a ticket as he began to read:
had a daughter who was killed by a speeding car at the age
of six, by a speeding driver like you. He got a fine, few
months in jail, and was free, free to hug his two other daughters.
I only had one, and now I have to wait until I get to heaven
before I can hug her again. I have tried to forgive that guy
a thousand times, and I thought I had. Maybe I really did
forgive him, but I have to do it again, even right now. So
pray for me, and be careful when you drive again, my son is
all I have left”.
guy was totally dumb-founded and could not move for the next
few minutes. When finally he did, he drove slowly, even few
miles under the speed limit, praying for forgiveness.
not rush in life – It won’t take you any-where.
one day at a time, be the driver of your life within the limits
