Who Made This Road?

[199 words]

Ever drive down a road and wondered what kind person would design something like this? Well, if you live in New York chances are it was Robert Moses. He was an urban planner that helped to design many of the highways and bridge systems in New York City. His ideas were often controversial and range from the displacement of thousands of people from their homes to his plans that lead to the Dodgers leaving town.

But the oddest thing about the man, the same man that helped create America’s Car Culture, the man critics claimed “loved cars more than people” is he never learned to drive.

It is an example of how people can be experts in others’ business. It is easy to tell others what to do, but it is much harder to make ourselves do the same things. In those times we need to remember Galatians 6:3-5, “For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. For each one will bear his own”
