Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. William James
what kind of things make a difference…. a smile… taking a packet of chocolate biscuits into work for morning tea… a friendly email to say, hi, i was thinking of you… a card in the mail to a friend… a hug… a cup of tea after a long day… a compliment… a kind word… soup for an unwell friend… a saved seat at church… helping wash up after dinner… lending a book… lending a cd…
we would call it random acts of kindness nowdays… but these random acts can have a ripple effect in someone’s life
you get my drift… little things… simple things… but they can make a real difference to someone’s day. we don’t know what is going on behind closed doors, and the smile we see may just be for “appearances sake” (not to be rude… i know i do it… cos i also like being with people etc…) and so even the smallest kindness can make a difference. we do not see the loneliness of someone’s heart, or their fears and insecurities. people do not often project their hurts and worries to others… they hide them.
but God sees.
he sees all.
and so we, his children. can make a difference. we can share the love.
simple things. but they make a difference.
