Going to Walmart is kind of like going to church for me. Now, don’t get me wrong, I in no way equate the edict of “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together” (Hebrews 10:25 NKLV) with making sure to catch discounted prices on cat food. What I mean to say is that God’s presence and blessings are everywhere.
I find that Walmart shoppers get the “come as you are message” loud and clear. I love it! Thus, I feel less of the glare of judgement and more of the “nudge-ment” energies that warm each other into a recognition that we are all in the same lot. That friendliness, acceptance and encouragement is part of fellowship.
Sometimes people come into Walmart on their last dollar. Sometimes folks sit on the curbs of the medians, just staring out in their work uniforms or mechanic outfits. Sometimes families come in droves, cheerful and laughing and releasing a little bit of the terror they left behind. I’m not a big fan of commercialism or efforts by ad companies to make us feel less-than in order to sell us their often empty wares. I am a big fan, however, of bringing God wherever I go—even to the furniture aisle.
