Work in Progress

It’s 5:30 AM and this morning I am sitting alone in front of the Marshall Student Center at USF Tampa – now all aglow in lights. On the way here I stopped  by  the Waffle House and had a T-bone steak with eggs and grits. The restaurant was full of happy people well acquainted with each other and with the staff as well.  A great feeling of warmth came over me when I realized we were all "works in progress." Somewhere I have seen on T-shirts “God is not through with me yet.” That’s really a wonderful insight I think. – To know that we are not the end-all and be-all of human progress and civilization. I remember so well a University of South Florida's history professor saying that it seems that every generation thinks their challenges are the most important that mankind has or will ever face. What a relief it is to see that humanity is a work in progress. There is always so much more to learn and understand. Why don't we have a little more generosity for our fellow humans not only in the past nor merely present but also in the time to come. If God is willing to risk it,  who am I to do any less?
