Rainy Day Serving

As my small group continued to move through our most recent study - Outflow - we kicked around a few ideas about how we might do something as a group to serve others. We are planning on something in April.

A rainy Saturday and an empty nest for the weekend led Anita and I to go to the Northcross Target on a whim Saturday during the rain and walk people back and forth from their cars to the store.

A few observations:
  • Most people are surprised by kindness
  • Most people accept kindness
  • Thank you's can be said without words
  • Some people are just waiting for someone to be kind to them so they can talk
  • Even little kids notice
  • It wasn't rocket science

Steve Sjogren challenges all believers:

Whatever it is that you do, you can go about your day intentionally flinging seeds, nurturing relationships, and baring lasting fruit for God in the lives around you. If you do this, loving your city will become part of your everyday lifestyle.

It was a good day in the rain Saturday, flinging seeds.
