Give Yourself to Others …

Random Acts of Kindness

Posted on: 2009/05/29

I was doing my periodic perusing around the internet today, when I recalled a web site I’d visited a long time ago:

I hope you’ll check it out — and even if you don’t visit it, I hope you think about the idea of random acts of kindness.

It’s unremarkable for anyone to return a compliment or kind jesture, but it’s another thing when that kind act just comes out of the blue and the “actor” doesn’t ask for anything in return.

To most of us, our friends are those people who give back to us, the same kind of caring, sharing, consideration, assistance … that we give them.  After all, “what are friends for.”

Agape — the kind of love that Jesus showed towards us — is when we go out of our way to do the unexpected and unexpectedly require nothing in return for it.
