A kickstand is a tiny piece of metal.
There’s some mechanism that allows it to fold and unfold.
If you unfold it, kick it down, it stands up and holds the bike in place while it is stationary, while you aren’t riding it.
When its time to move it or ride it, you kick it back into its folded position.
If you try to ride the bike with the kickstand down it drags and you are unable to properly ride the bike.
In one place, one season, one atmosphere, one environment, the kickstand extended is necessary. In the other, it is absolutely detrimental. One has to be aware of the purpose of the kickstand in order to properly use it.
The kickstand serves. It serves an important purpose. It is a help to the rider of the bike. The rider doesn’t have to support the bike. The kickstand does all the work.
One could assume the kickstand is abused because it is constantly kicked and drags across the ground. But that is why it was created. It is serving the purpose it was intended for. It is made out of durable material. It was made to endure.
Jesus said the greatest person is the least, the one who serves is the greatest, last will be first.
I have no idea where I was gonna go with this.
I am almost always long winded.
Chiiiii. Just take this as it is written and draw from it what it is saying like we are to do with the Bible.
Cuz honestly, as written now, it blessed me.
I may write more later.
But I’m always expounding.
Maybe this one time, I pray, the little bit I wrote will lead you to more on your own.
Go be great. Someone is counting on it.
