I have been thinking about Jesus lately. I wonder what he'd think of me, of my lifestyle, if he were around. Why do I care? Not sure except when you really admire someone, you want to think they'd approve of your choices, right? Well, bad news. I'm pretty sure he'd be disappointed in me.
For starters he would say, "Listen, if you are going to go around the countryside trying to heal the sick and help the lame to walk, why are you doing it in a gas-powered vehicle that pollutes the environment and heats up the atmosphere.?"
I would mutter something in an embarrassed voice about how it gets an average of 34 miles per gallon.
He would not be impressed.
"Walking was good enough for me, why do you have to drive to do your work?"
I would remind him that my productivity standards require me to see a certain number of patients per 8 hour day.
He would just stare at me and roll his eyes. He might mention I could ride on an ass.
I would probably go out on a limb and say that, in a way, I'm already doing that. But after we both got over our case of the giggles, he'd say, "Ok, a horse. a camel. a bicycle. or how about an electric vehicle?"
Hmm...the EVs only go about 70 miles on one charge, and I often drive more than that.
BUT...just last week I got reassigned to a new territory and I usually will be driving much less than 70 miles in a day. In fact last week I only drove 102 miles ALL WEEK for work. So maybe an EV is a possibility.
And then with some solar panels, maybe I can stop contributing QUITE so much to the mess.
