I walked through Belk department store today. I tried on clothes that had been marked down all the way to $4.98. They fit. The pants were one size smaller. They fit, too. I was really excited by the bargains, and the good fit of the pants. And they had coordinated jewelry on sale, too. I was just thinking I needed a few new pieces of jewelry.
But then I remembered that in about three weeks, I may discover that I'll be moving to a different section of the department store for clothing - namely the maternity section. The pants that fit so well today, a size smaller, would become obsolete for the next nine months as my body proportions change. And I'd rather have that money to spend on new maternity clothes.
So I left everything in the fitting room, hung properly, but not re-merchandized. I'm a little guilty about that. But I'm feeling pretty self-righteous for walking out of the store empty handed.
Then I climbed into my car that had been parked in a reserved space for expectant mothers.
Does this qualify me for walking by faith, not by sight, since I didn't see the sign?
