Have you guys ever seen that movie? Pay it Forward? Where the kid does nice things for others, and it goes on and on?
Have you ever done that? I mean, just done a random act of kindness for someone, whether you knew the person or not? My pastor, like, a year ago, told us of a story of a random act of kindness done for him. He was at a restaurant, eating, talking with whoever he was with. Well, it came time to pay the bill and the waiter told him his bill had been taken care of already.
My pastor asked by whom but the waiter didn’t say. It was just a random act of kindness done by someone. Well, my pastor challenged us all to do that (not the restaurant thing exactly, but just something) so Charlie (that’s my hubby) and I tried it.
We chose the restaurant thing. We saw a guy eating alone at a restaurant and it was coming time for him to pay, I stole away from our table and pulled the man’s waiter aside and paid for his meal. I asked him not to say anything. So, Charlie and I watched from afar and saw the pleasant, yet confused, look on the stranger’s face. I thought my heart was going to burst out from my chest it was so rewarding.
But what’s even more rewarding is that the waiter asked why on earth did we do that? So, we got to share with the waiter a little bit about our faith and the whole random act of kindness thing.
Have you guys ever done anything like that? Tell me about it, I’d love to hear it. If not, I encourage you to try something, whether it’s the restaurant thing, or something else.
Have a great day everyone!
