Today is National Pay It Forward Day!
No kidding. There’s a national holiday designated for every single day of the year and today is a great one to celebrate!
I am writing this late on National Pay It Forward Day so I am hoping you will still allow yourself to celebrate tomorrow and maybe the next day or even into next month.
Think about something that someone has done for you over the years that really sticks out in your mind. Maybe it was buying your meal at a drive-thru or buying you a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop. Perhaps you got flowers unexpectedly from a friend or your spouse made your favorite dinner and dessert to celebrate an ordinary day.
Whatever comes to mind, I challenge you to do that for someone else. Pay it forward. Find someone that you can bless by doing a random act of kindness.
*Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while.
*Visit an elderly neighbor or friend.
*Send a bright colored bouquet of flowers to your sibling.
*Make cookies for the babysitter.
*Send a gift card for dinner-out to a single mom.
And I also want you to think a step further.
Have you ever asked for someone to pray for you and you know they did? Why don’t you pay that forward by PRAYING it forward?
Think of someone who could really use prayers and take just a few minutes to ask God to help them, to bless them, to protect them.
Pay It Forward.
Pray It Forward.
May God bless you as you show His love by making a difference in your corner of the world.
