Adapting to the Space

I’m taking a New Testament course from a wise professor in a very small space where I’m scrunched up next to him and other students. When I remark about the awkward arrangement, he says, “You’ve never lived overseas, have you?”

He kindly says, “Something I’ve learned in my life is the importance of adapting to whatever space I’m given.”

Here in my own context, I’m used to expansive space all the time. I live a wide-open kind of life, unhindered and unconstrained. Put me in something small, and I protest.

Lesson learned.
