The story goes…Two friends catch a cab together. As they enter the cab, the grumpy driver say’s where to? The address was given and he sped away. He was the worst cab driver possible. Even so the one passenger was very nice to him. The other one was kind of surprised that his friend would be so nice.
When the cab driver slammed on the breaks at the address the two men jumped out and the one man paid and gave him a nice tip…and said you gave a great rideto the man have a great day! His friend looked at him and said… man are you crazy? That was the worst ride ever! Why would you tip and compliment that crazy driver too? The friend said. Obviously he has had a bad day. I didn’t want to add to his bad day. I tipped and complimented him in hope’s of improving his day. I was hoping if I helped improve his day, he would be nicer to the next rider. Possibly he will go home and not take it out on his wife and kids. I feel as if all of us could be a little nicer, especially when others are having a horrible day, that we could all help the world to be a better place.

What does the bible say? Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Eph 4:31-32
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. Prov 11:24-25
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
