Be a Blessing

When you help a needy person, do it in such a way that even your closest friend will not know about it. Then it will be a private matter. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you. ~ Matthew 6:3-4

The following are some ideas of ways to be a blessing to others:
Hug a friend or family member.
Clean up litter on a street in your neighborhood.
Drop off a plant or some home-made baked goods to a neighbor.
Say something nice to everyone you meet today.
Leave a kind note for a family member or friend.
Tell kids why you love them.
Cheer-up a friend.
Donate blood.
Smile and say "Hello" to people you don't know.
Offer to babysit for free.
Offer someone behind you in the grocery check out line to go in front of you.
Open the car door for your passenger.
Take a neighbors newspaper laying out on their driveway to them or leave at their front door.
Tell the mail carrier thank you for all their work.
Let a neighbor know how much you value their friendship.
Let a manager know you compliment a sales clerk for their pleasant service.
Leave your change in the soda machine for the next person. It's a nice surprise.
If you’re a boss of a company - allow your employees to leave a half hour early as a surprise.
Pay for the persons order behind you when in a drive through line.
Run an errand for someone.
Call a parent just to say you love them.
Help an elderly person care for their pet(s).
Take a meal to a family you know.
Stop into a nursing home just to spend a little time with the residents.
Send flowers to a teacher who has dedicated their life to educating children.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ~ Colossians 3:17

Shine God’s light everywhere you go and to everyone you meet.
