What can I share today?

Good Monday from the Heartland.

Here we are, Monday already, how the times flies by!

As we begin a new week, opportunities lie before us, opportunities to make money, to get things done and to cross off everything on our “to do” lists.  But there is another opportunity we might consider: We also have the opportunity to make this a great day that we never forget.  I doubt that making this such a memorable day will have all that much to do with our “to do’s” to be honest.

We also have the opportunity to share with someone; to share in a way that they will not soon forget.  We can share the love of Jesus Christ today!

In all likelihood this will not involve any preaching, however.  More likely this opportunity involves an act of kindness or empathy.  It might involve sharing with someone who has less than we, or it might involve listening and showing compassion.  It could even be as simple as a smile at just the right moment, or an “atta boy.”

Making a difference isn’t really all that hard, it simply requires that we pay attention and then respond in a way that gladdens the heart of another.  Who knows?  If this becomes a habit, that other person might just ask what it is that you have and that they don’t and then you can tell them about your relationship with Jesus Christ.  Oh yes, that would be a memorable day indeed!
