Less Comfort and More Kindness

This is Random Acts of Kindness week.  It is no coincidence that every year it corresponds with the week of Valentine’s Day – the day where more people show genuine love to others than any other day of the year.  It is so much fun to do kind things for others.  The giver gets as much in return as the receiver.  There are so many ideas of kind things to do for others on the RAK.org and Pinterest websites.

I challenge you today to do something kind for someone every day this week.  It’s good to do something for someone close to you, but look outward and do something for someone you don’t know or you don’t see a lot.  Do it because you are paying forward and sharing some of the love that Christ shows to you every day.

Paul writes to the Corinthians in 2 Corinthians 8:7 – “But just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see that you also excel in this grace of giving.”

Have fun with it.  Step out of your Comfort Box.  Giving always brings joy.  Give until your heart feels like it could burst with joy!!

I would love to hear any stories you have about your kindness acts this week or any acts of kindness that were done for you.  God is working in this world and it’s up to us to do our part!  You can email me at mybucketbuddies@hotmail.com.  I can’t wait to hear stories of how kindness acts are making a difference to the world!
