Traffic and Potential

Traffic and Potential

This morning, I drove in the worst traffic I have ever driven in. I left my house at 7:50 am to go speak at Mexico City Christian Academy. I was scheduled to speak at 8:30, but I didn’t arrive until 9. It usually takes me only a half an hour to get there. But today, it was over an hour.

Most of the time, I was behind a Mustang GT, and I began to think about the waste of potential there was in that car. I would never own a Mustang GT in Mexico City because there is no reason to have that much power under the hood with very little opportunity to use it. I am always amazed that there is a Ferrari dealer here in this city.

My thoughts then wandered to Samson. He was a man of so much potential. He had lots of power. Judges says multiple times that the Spirit of God came on him. Imagine what he could have been. He was constantly stuck in traffic due to his own personal problems. I pray that my life can live up to its potential and that I can get out of the traffic jam that I sometimes get myself into.
