10 Work hard to feed hungry people.
Satisfy the needs of those who are crushed.
Then my blessing will light up your darkness.
And the night of your suffering will become as bright as the noonday sun.
Tomorrow is Random Acts of Kindness Day. I had no idea. Well…until I read Twitter.
I learn about a lot of things when I read Twitter. So I googled it, and guess what I found?
Not only is it actually Random Acts of Kindness Week, but did you know there is also an entire organization?
Let me just say I am fascinated. Fascinated that an organization is around to remind us to be nice to each other. Fascinated that it takes a website with Resources
to inspire us in ways to be kind to not just strangers but in our workplace, our community and in our classrooms. Fascinated that we, as a nation (or just as humans), have to be reminded to be nice; that it evidently doesn’t come naturally.
It makes me sad. It makes me wonder what Jesus thinks of all this. Is He glad that a website exists with the simple goal of promoting kindness?
That we have to have a website to remember to:
- open a door for someone and let them enter first.
- Let someone cut in line.
- Smile at a stranger.
- Say a friendly hello to a man who is obviously homeless and living on the street.
And, do it without fear.
People are people. People like to see a smiling face. People who are hungry or hurting desire a friendly hello. A line to communication. A thread of kindness to permeate whatever may be going on in their world.
People are hurting today. Whether financially, physically, emotionally — it doesn’t matter how.
It just matters.
Be kind today. And, with me, let’s promise to try our very best to make every day a Random Act of Kindness Day.
Thank you, Random Act of Kindness.org, for taking the time to be kind. Thank you.
Hugging you all deeply today,
