Actions Speak Louder than Words
But love your enemies and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great. Luke 6:35
I’ve seen bumper stickers exhorting us to “show random acts of kindness.” That’s a good thing. What is kindness? It’s love in the little things.
A woman came down the aisle of a church to give her heart to Christ. The pastor wanted to know what had impacted her life for Christ.
She said, “You did.”
“Well, I’d be interested to know what I said that brought you to Christ.”
“It was nothing you said. It was something you did. I was standing nearby when someone criticized you very unfairly. I saw the kindness with which you responded. That’s when I knew your faith was real.”
What random act of kindness can you do today that will demonstrate your faith is real?
