A Small Act of Kindness

When last have you gone out of your way to do something kind for someone – expecting nothing in return?

A few days ago, my friend Tina and I were having a conversation about what I could add to my smoothies to make them sweeter. She suggested pineapple and mentioned how a particular food store was having a sale on them. I told her I saw that in the store just a day before and thought of picking up one, but didn’t.

Later that afternoon, I got a call from Tina, asking if I were in office and whether she could stop by. Shortly afterwards she was there and as she walked in, she told her daughter to hand me the bag.

There was the pineapple!

I was pleasantly surprised and gave her a big hug! I thought of how the simple, unexpected kindness of others really make a difference. This was a pineapple that I believe cost $3.99. The gesture just warmed my heart. And I can tell you, my smoothies now have a sweet kick to them – thanks to the pineapple and huge thanks to Tina!

“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.” ~ Romans 12:10

I challenge you to do something kind for someone today – expecting nothing in return.

Growing in Christ,
