All That Matters

I have this obedience training with shopping carts. If you don’t know about it, you can read it here.

To be promoted in life, I do my best to take good care of what I already have. If I can’t handle what’s been entrusted to me, there’s no need to be trusted with more. (Matt. 25:21)

I went to the market this week, and as I was putting up my shopping cart, I noticed the carts were askew. I took a minute to straighten them out, by placing the large ones on the left and small carts on the right. This gave ample space for more carts.

There was a young man sitting in a car in front of the carts watching me. He could tell I didn’t work there, so he was probably wondering why I was doing that.

This was more than just returning my cart. I was straightening all of them.

Walking back to my truck I thought, “There’s always someone watching.” I paused a moment to take in my surroundings and it didn’t bother me that someone had seen what I’d done. I know there is One who is always watching, and that’s really all that matters.

  1. While I don’t share your spiritual beliefs I do believe in being considerate of all who share the planet (and the planet itself) – so yes, I always return my cart and any others I find “misplaced”, I hold doors, I say “thank you”, a lot. It IS the small considerations in our daily lives, be it only a smile, that make the world a little bit better on any given day. I often talk about the ordinary being extraordinary because you never know how your little considerations can perhaps change a life – even if only for a moment.
