There is no doubt that small things done with great love can change the world. A random act of kindness with no strings attached is a great way to show the love of Jesus to those around us.
With each act, simply give an Acts of Kindness card to let someone know they are noticed and loved by God. Kindness builds the bridge for the person to receive a touch of love from God. It's simple, practical, effective, inexpensive, and fun!
Here are some "random acts of kindness" ideas. You'll hear responses like, "Oh, thank you!" "This is so nice!" "I can't believe this is for free!" and, "Why are you doing this?"
Acts of Kindness cards are available at the Next Steps center in the lobby. Pick yours up this weekend and see how one act of kindness can make an incredible difference.
