Day’?s Verse:
I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.
Revelation 3:1-2

I rarely mention environmental issues on my blog, although they play a big part in my life and the decisions I make. Today, though, I would like to point out an excellent article in The Seattle Times on why we don’t carpool. We don’t carpool, the writer says, because:

  • We’re spoiled
  • We’re set in our ways
  • We don’t trust other drivers with our lives
  • We don’t know the true cost of commuting alone

The writer candidly discusses her own reasons for driving a gas guzzler, and concludes that maybe when gas gets just a little more expensive, she’ll consider carpooling.

I highly recommend the article. As you read it, ask yourself: Do I have any truly compelling reasons for not finding an alternative, more pocketbook- and environmentally-friendly way of commuting?

  1. Okay, so check this out Katie. This would also be a great outline for a pastor who wanted to speak on, let’s say, Surrender to God.
    Reasons why we don’t:
    1. We’re spoiled
    2. We’re set in our ways
    3. We don’t trust God with our lives
    4. We don’t know the true cost of trusting in ourselves.
