Buying Groceries

Earlier today when I went to the store to buy groceries, the woman who checked me out was very rude and negative.  As I prayed about how to handle her, I was reminded of Genesis 1:26-27 where it states, “Then God said, “let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female he created them.”

Now as I thought on this while still looking at her, I began to pray to know the truth about her as well because those verses are all-inclusive.    As I left, I told her to have a blessed day and my heart lifted.  As I heard her complain, I thought about “Complaint being poverty” and “Gratitude being riches”.  The entire trip home I prayed about her and vaguely remembered a time when I would have reacted to her rudely.  That was so long ago and never a part of who I am, nor could it be her.
