One kindergarten teacher often reminded her misbehaving children to stop being a WAM. The kids straightened up as soon as their teacher pointed out that they were being a WAM.
What is a WAM? Why was being a WAM so bad? The teacher explained that WAM stands for “What About ME?” She was training the children to be less self-centered. She wanted them to think about the needs of others and not just their own needs. So she taught them that no one liked a WAM, a self-centered and a self-interested person who only asked: “What About ME?”
Instead, she taught them to be a WAY, or as she explained it, people who ask, “What About YOU?”
You and I are people of the WAY. We must always try to ask, “What About YOU?” Oh, occasionally we forget who we really are. We get lost and we lose our spiritual footing and we become a WAM.
We need to remember what Jesus said, “I am the WAY, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6).
