Horn Honking

Grandma Danny writes in her Bible, “You can judge a person’s character the same way you judge an automobile driver — by the number of times he blows his own horn.”

I wonder what she would think about the political advertisements that are occurring in North Carolina, Arkansas, and around the country. Long gone are leaders who are self effacing and willing to joke at their own expense. Long gone are advertisements saying why I should vote for a candidate, but I am overwhelmed with ads telling how bad the other candidate is.
But I ramble about a subject not worthy of meditation.
Humility is at the forefront of being a disciple. This morning ask yourself how do you put your own horn on mute, and seek out a neighbor who you can toot theirs. That is kind of music we should be playing.
