This may be the sin I’m most ashamed to admit.
I was at the gas station the other day and as I was getting in my car to leave, I tossed a crumpled receipt into the garbage can. At just the right second, a gust of wind caught hold of the paper and propelled it onto the ground. I looked at it sitting there on the pavement, closed my door and drove away.
I have not littered since I stopped smoking many years ago. I was one who threw my butts out the window – disgusting, I know.
Driving home I shook my head in dismay. Why didn’t I just pick up the receipt and return it to the trash? Laziness. Slovenliness. As I write this today, I still can’t believe that I littered. It’s such a vile thing.
Lord, forgive me for my laziness. Help me to be more conscientious about my actions and to continue to obey the laws of the land. In doing so, I obey and honor you. Amen.
Let’s finish this up on Friday! I’m dying to drink in the Lord’s forgiveness.
See you then!
