At one busy airport there was a long line of travelers waiting to buy tickets.
The line grew so long and moved so slowly that patience was wearing thin. At the worst possible moment, two boisterous women carrying large suitcases started elbowing their way to the front of the line.
A man near the head of the line saw that the two women were pushing and shoving and feared that the situation was getting out of control. Consequently he offered them his own place in the line.
This response took everyone, including the two women, by complete surprise. A great silence came over the entire scene. The man then picked up his own luggage and walked to the back of the line.
One little act of counter-intelligence turned a disaster into a magical moment . . . all because of one act of genuine humility.

Would YOU and I do something like this? Almost certainly NOT! But God sent us someone who did – Jesus, who went to the rear of the Sinful Humanity Line and Died on a Cross for Us!
America and the world around us will only get better when people like YOU and Me and many others are willing to go to the back of the line.
WEARING A CROSS DOES NOT MAKE YOU A DISCIPLE OF JESUS. CARRYING A CROSS DOES!
