Read The Daily

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10)

One of my favorite scenes from the movie “42: The Story of Jackie Robinson” is when Jackie’’s at first base and begins to throw the ball around the infield. Many in the crowd heap abuse. Pee Wee Reese jogs across the infield from his shortstop position and stands next to Robinson.

ROBINSON: What’s up?
REESE: They can say what they want. We’re here to play baseball.
ROBINSON: Just a bunch of crackpots still fighting the Civil War.
REESE: We’d have won that son of a gun if the cornstalks had held out. (Robinson laughs)
ROBINSON: Better luck next time, Pee Wee. (Reese puts his arm around Jack’s shoulder)
REESE: Ain’t gonna be a next time. All we got is right now.

I love that scene because it reminds us all of a great truth.  Kindness doesn’t have to be grand to be significant. Imagine incorporating small acts of kindness into your daily routine: smiling at strangers, leaving a positive note for someone, or simply offering a helping hand without being asked. These moments of kindness are often the most memorable and impactful.

The call to do good to all people reminds us that our everyday actions matter. In a world where it’s easy to feel disconnected and overwhelmed, choosing to spread kindness is a powerful way to reflect God’s love. Each act, no matter how small, is a step towards creating a more compassionate and loving community.  That’s why this week’s Chasing Epic Challenge is to find one random act of kindness for someone else that you don’t know.  Don’t worry about it being amazing or grand, just something that helps someone when they least expect it (or deserve it).  Why?  Because, all we got is right now. 

Prayer for the Day

God what are you  showing me?  What am I going to do about it? 

God help me to see one person that I can serve through a kind word, random act of kindness, or simple gift today?
