I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Ikea on a Sunday, but that’s a crazy place! You know immediately what kind of day it’s going to be when you pull in and can’t find decent parking in that giant parking lot. People turn off the world when they go in there; standing in the aisles, stopping abruptly, and running into others with those uncontrollable carts. It’s as if they are the only ones there! That store has anything and everything you need for a house except for the outer walls and the roof; maybe not the toilets, I didn’t see any of those. A lot of times I think we throw out our consideration for others when we get into a frenzied place, all bets are off and people become less than human. Though we may have the tendency to jump in and follow the behavior of the crowd, we still have the image of Jesus to uphold. Remember who you are! You are royalty and should behave as such.
for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. Galatians 3:26
