Ephesians 3:20 says ‘God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!’ (MSG). If God can do things unexpected in our lives, perhaps we should occasionally do something unexpected for someone too. God smiles on those who bless others.
You might ring a friend and arrange a quick coffee, you might drop by a neighbour and brighten their day, you might take a relative for a quick shopping trip, pay for someone’s groceries in the supermarket or do something nice as a surprise for a loved one in your family.
When we do something unexpected, the result is usually overwhelmingly positive, comments like ‘You’ve made my day’ or ‘that was a lovely surprise’ will happen. Loving and serving people is a wonderful way of showing the love of Christ operating through you, shine the light of Jesus today!
Sometimes the best thing to do on a mundane day is provide a surprise!
Father, lead me to what I should do today to bless someone, I pray, Amen.
Action Point Don’t be so busy today, that you miss the opportunity to do something unexpected. It will be a wonderful opportunity to and for a friend.
