Don't you just love to receive little surprises? I sure do! It reminds me someone cares for me, and took the time to do something special just for me!
Over the years, I've been blessed to be the recipient of many random acts of kindness. From a lovely flower on my desk at work, to surprises left on my front porch. God has often provided for me through the love of anonymous friends. So now I try to "pay it forward," and find that in doing so, I am the one that really gets the blessing!
On her "Keep It Simple" program, Emilie Barnes shares this message with her listeners and encourages them to do "spontaneous acts of kindness" for others. It's such a simple gift of love you can give someone.
Some of the ideas she suggests are, putting a note in your spouse or child's lunch, letting someone have that parking space you were going to take, or leaving an anonymous gift of money for someone. Or, how about mowing your elderly neighbor's lawn, or taking that new mom and dad on the block a casserole?
Hebrews 13:2 reminds us to "entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels with knowing it."
Why don't you show someone Christ's love today with a little act of kindness? You'll be surprised at what a blessing it will be.
