I was reading about the anonymous donors who have been paying off lay-a-ways for people struggling. This has touched my heart so much. If you haven’t heard about it, then you can read more at http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/12/15/anonymous-donors-pay-off-kmart-layaway-accounts-across-country/. I may be a Grinch about a lot of things, but kids having Christmas is not one of them.
Wouldn’t it be nice if more people did this type of thing? Maybe we can’t do it on such a large-scale. But we can help others. I think that in recent times we are more of a “me” society. This type of thing is more about real Christian values and helping others in need. I love this philosophy. Help others. You never know when you may need help.
You may not think you have anything to offer. There are things you can do that aren’t huge but they mean a great deal to others. How about when you’re around parking meters and you see one about to expire that you throw your pocket change in it? It could stop someone from getting a ticket that they couldn’t afford. How about buying someone lunch? If you’re in a fast food line, pay for the person behind you. How about a food drive in your office? There are lots of things that can be done. Just do it. You don’t know how much a small act of kindness on your part will impact someone else’s life.
