Give yourself a gift today. Not a material gift that you purchase…but a gift that comes from the heart. When doing something for other people…you will receive the gift of satisfaction and nurturing within yourself. Somewhere within this day…you will find an opportunity to share a random act of kindness with someone you come across. Open up your heart to allow God to share His love through you…towards someone else. These acts of kindness do not need to be big…just small gestures…such as opening up a door…smiling and saying hello…lending a hand when you see there is a need…complimenting someone…or leaving a note of gratitude. The act of sharing kindness with someone…in turn…nurtures your own spirit. You give yourself the opportunity for God to work through you. He will show you how having love and compassion for other’s…can be the ultimate reward for yourself.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. COLOSSIANS 3:17
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that confess His name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. HEBREWS 13:15-16
God is with us.
