What If Somebody Cuts You Off In Traffic?


By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Pastor - InternetChurchOfChrist.org

Q: What if somebody cuts you off in traffic?
- - A: Give him space, do not respond to him at all, pray for him, pray for the safety of others.

Details . . .

Your first obligation is to the safety of everyone who might be directly affected by this cutoff, so immediately you should give plenty of space to the car which cut you off. Let him go on about his business without further incident. You should not respond to him in any way, either positive or negative. Just let the incident pass without apparent notice on your part. Do not allow yourself to become angry, but immediately forgive the other driver. Please recognize that reckless driving is frequently a symptom of other problems in the life of the driver, so pray for him. The other driver has already demonstrated that he may be dangerous to others, so also pray for the safety of others he might harm.

Bedrock Scriptures which apply:

   Galatians 5:14 
   For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 

   Matthew 6:14-15 
   For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men
   their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses

   Matthew 5:44-45 
   But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
   them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in
   heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 

   Matthew 7:12 
   Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law
   and the prophets. 

   Romans 8:28 
   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to
   his purpose.
