THE THINKING TABLE
A local television station sent one of its reporters to a kindergarten to interview the children. One young boy seemed to stand out above all of the other children. His energy, his enthusiasm, his excitement was very obvious.
Approaching him the reporter asked, “Do you like school?”
“Oh yes,” he replied. Then he became quiet for a moment and said, “Except for the thinking table.”
“The thinking table? What’s the thinking table?” asked the reporter.
“It’s that table over in the corner. The teacher sends us over there to make us think,” he responded.
“Think? Think about what?” continued the interviewer.
“Well,” the boy answered, “the last time I had to go there and think was after I hit Sarah. I had to go over there and think about why I hit her and why I shouldn’t have.”
Paul said that we “should think of others better than we think of ourselves.” This does not mean that we should put ourselves down in comparison to others, but that we are to set aside our desires and not take advantage of others. We are to treat others with respect and common courtesy. If we did think of their needs first we would not need “thinking tables.”
Prayer: Often, Father, we think “more highly of ourselves” than we should. We ask You to convict and convince us to “let Your mind be in us.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each one of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
