Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
You have probably seen them. They are the ones that park in the fire lanes or take up two parking spaces so that their car doesn't get scratched. You can find them in the check out line in the lane for twenty items or less with an overflowing basket. They are the ones who feel that the rules don't apply to them.
My wife and I have started to call them special people because we are certain that they feel that they are so special that manners, politeness, and other peoples feelings come second to their own desires.
One thing I have noticed about Special People like that is that they are seldom smiling. They seem to have a chip on their shoulder and are just daring the world to say anything to them about their unacceptable behavior. It might just be my opinion but I believe that they are miserable and that their lives are filled with strife and there is an awful emptiness there.
Maybe, just maybe, if they would humble themselves and think of others before themselves it would give them a feeling of fulfillment and they would learn to smile. I know that making others feel better certainly makes me happy.
