Tuesday was this week's recycle day. I had more 'junk' than would fit into my yellow container. So I tied together one stack of periodicals and another of newspapers, to pile on top.

Maybe I had better put the magazines and newspapers in a garbage bag to protect them from the elements.

I tried putting the smaller stack of magazines on top. Too slippery. They kept wanting to slide off.

Then I tried putting the larger stack of papers on the top. Too much bigger than their smaller counterparts. They wanted to slide off.

Next plan? stack them side by side. And let the black bag cover both of them!

As I watched the process, I thought about people and how we treat them. Or how they treat us.

It works best if we are neither 'over them' in leadership. Nor have to 'put up' with someone who is 'bossing us around'.

Whether we are leaders or followers, it works best if we 'come along side' one another to accomplish a task.

The Bible says (I John 4:7 - "Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are children of God, and that they are getting to know Him better."
