Stupid is, stupid does …

“GOD sticks his head out of heaven. He looks around. He’s looking for someone not stupid—one man, even, God-expectant, just one God-ready woman.” Psalm 14:3

I believe the stupidest people on Earth are the ones driving around the same time I’m on the road. Actually, I’ve been accused of being a stupid driver, too. One day on my way to a grocery store, I cut off a car behind me (without realizing the lane narrowed), and the woman I cut off followed me into the parking lot and told me I hadn’t ever do that again. I was surprised by her approach, and all I could think of to say in response was, “Thank you.” I was guilty and there was no need to fuss with her about it. Besides, she may have helped me from making the same mistake again and possibly causing an accident.

It’s difficult for me to admit when I make a mistake–especially obvious stupid ones. I try hard to stay on a narrow path to be kind, considerate, and thoughtful of others because I don’t like to disappoint anyone, and I hate looking and feeling stupid.

I’m sure God frowns a lot when he sticks his head out of heaven and looks around at people acting stupid. The older I get, the more intolerant I am of observing stupid people tricks–even my own.

Lord, give me “smart pills” to take every day to avoid doing stupid things. Amen.
