This is one wacky holiday we can all sink our teeth into. It doesn’t take a lot of work. It can be something as simple as paying someone a compliment, helping them carry their groceries to the car, make a meal, share a good book. Being kind to others isn’t something we should just set aside for one day a year. Like Valentines Day it should be something we naturally think about and act upon every day of the year.
Be careful though. There are those out there that aren’t used to being treated kindly. They may think you have ulterior motives. They may find your kindness offensive. They might believe you’re being politically incorrect.
Isn’t it a sad state of affairs, when we have to worry about how people will react to a good deed. When you think about it, we shouldn’t even consider it a good deed. It should be a simple extension of who we are. Our good deeds are a result of the gratitude we have for God’s intervention in our lives. We shouldn’t do them expecting to get something in return or because it’s expected of us.
Today and every day, stop and think about what Jesus did for you. He didn’t think twice about shedding His blood for us. He willingly gave up His life and rose from death so that we could share in eternal life. That isn’t just random. It was part of God’s plan from the beginning of time.
HAPPY RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS DAY!
