Acts of Random Kindness

My family and I enjoyed watching the video "Evan Almighty" last evening. I was quite pleased and surprised with the message that this movie portrayed. Evan is a new politician that wants to change the world. God shows Evan the importance of performing acts of random kindness (ARK).

I thought about this as I drove my 11th grade son to his two college classes, which are just starting today. Performing acts of random kindness are quite simple. It could be: letting a car into traffic, allowing a pedestrian to safely cross the street, putting bird food out in the winter time, surprising your spouse with his special drink and dropping it off at his office, giving a word of encouragement to a bloggy friend.... The possibilities are endless. When we perform these random acts of kindness we show Jesus' love to those that we touch and meet. What act of kindness can you do for someone today? You may be surprised by the joy that follows if you make this a pattern for your life.
