Today I had an interesting question asked of me and it kind of took me aback for a minute! I have been trying to do some nice things for someone and have maybe gone out of my way just a little to make a difference to this person. Today I was asked what was my motivation for doing what I was doing…..my answer was pretty simple and straight forward—because I have been in a similar situation many times and no one did this for me and I just thought it was the right thing to do. I don’t have any ulterior motives for being nice. I do it because it is who I am! And I think that when I show kindness it is a testimony to the God that I love—I think He smiles when he sees His children doing nice things for one another. Most likely I am not going to be able to save the world from hunger, stop the spread of diseases or be able to put an end to war in my lifetime but maybe, just maybe, I can show some kindness to people along the way and as a result let them see the light of Jesus through me. What do you think???
