Each day provides the opportunity to make a difference in someones life by small and simple means. In a devotional given by Bonnie D. Parkin about personal ministry she talked about “never suppressing a generous thought”. Meaning, when you have a kind thought, act on it!
I was having a down day a few months back when a dear friend I hadn’t spoken to in months texted me out of the blue to say, “I’ve been thinking about you lately… I love you”. The text was short and sweet, but had a big impact on not just my day, but the rest of the week… and even months later I’m appreciative of her small and simple act of kindness.
So the next time you are prompted to smile at a stranger, give a hug to a friend, or let someone know you are thinking of them, don’t think about it, just do it. Go ahead… make their day!
