Yield to Peds

Why the name?…

“Yield To Peds” is the name of the blog because it holds such a beautiful picture/concept for living life. When you’re driving your car and you see that “Yield to (picture of a walking silhouette )” sign sitting in the middle of the road, and then you see some people stepping out onto the street…what do you do? Hopefully you pump the breaks, slow yourself down and let the peds (pedestrians) cross the street.

What just happened?! A car is (in the words of Kanye West) “stronger – faster” than a human. In the typical everyday situations, the bigger, stronger, faster, person or object usually has “the right of way” in life. But in this instance, an object that weighs more, goes faster, and costs a lot of money just YIELDED to the slower, weaker, and sometimes annoying.

Am I able to do this on a daily basis…and in other areas of my life?

The person who embodies this concept perfectly is a man widely recognized throughout history…

Jesus Christ.

Philippians chapter 2 beautifully captures the very attitude of the life of Jesus. “Being in very nature God / made himself nothing / taking the very nature of a servant / being found in human appearance / he humbled himself / became obedient to death on a cross.”

Jesus made his life all about obedience to his Father and serving others. “Yield To Peds”

Let these 3 verses attach themselves to the Yield to Peds sign, so when you see it while driving or walking through life you are reminded of a more righteous way of living.

Philippians 2:3-5 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as Christ Jesus.”

Because I love the concept of “Yield To Peds” so much I decided it would be a great name for a band! Got to the MUSIC page for more info and a FREE download from Noisetrade!
