FRAME   Leave a comment

I recently bought a new car.  Not just a new car to me, but a brand new car.  It had 6 miles on it when I bought it.  It is the first brand new car I’ve ever had, and only the fifth one I’ve ever owned.  Have you bought a car in the past few years?  They have sure made a lot of technological improvements on them!

I can’t have a Christian license plate frame on my car.  You know – “Honk if you love Jesus” or “Pray for our troops”.  Especially not here in the San Francisco bay area, where I might get hurt by advertising I’m a Christian.

No, I can’t have a Christian license plate frame because of the way I drive.  I love my new car.  It is comfy and has things like blind spot indicators, and it corners really well.  And sometimes…. I follow too close.  I drive too fast.  I pull in front of someone closer than I should.  I shake my fists sometimes.

I can’t blame those things on my new car.  Nope — that’s me.  Flawed, imperfect, God-is-still-working-on-me me.

If you have one — I salute you.  I applaud you.  You are an example to me.  I’m gad you do.  But not for me.  Nope.  I’d give Christians a bad name if I had one.
