Just Stop It!

April 22, 2010

Litter bugs me? I just can’t get my head around it, what possesses people to just throw their trash on the ground? This time of year seems to be the worse and Tim’s cups seem to be the greatest offenders, but that might just be perception, after all, their spring cups are red and easier to spot. Or maybe people get upset with having the opportunity to play again and out of frustration, they just throw the offending cup out their car window.

I understand that in some countries, they cane people who litter. I wonder if that would take provincial or federal legislation, to make that a law in Canada?

I don’t litter, but I assume that those that do think, “Well, it’s just one cup, or one can or one bag, what will it hurt?” And if it was just one cup or can or bag, it probably wouldn’t hurt. But if you do it once, you will do it again and the point isn’t that it’s not much, the point is that it’s wrong and irresponsible.

And, I suppose it’s the same with whatever small sins litter our Christian lives and the answer is: just stop doing it. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
