Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” (Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭10‬ NLT)

Last night, two teams made a little boy’s dream come true. Born with physical challenges, Hunter can’t do everything his classmates can. But last night, at the last game of the season, suited up in full pads, Hunter was the star running back, running for 140 yards, scoring two touchdowns and making his whole town proud!

Sometimes what we do in the Christ Life doesn’t seem all that spiritual, but it does make a difference. Two schools working out the details so that this little man could have a once-in-a-lifetime experience will impact his family forever! But so does providing love, a helping hand, or a generous gift. Nothing done out of genuine love and compassion for the littlest of God’s children is ever a waste!

Hunter’s family will always remember the night that their little boy was the Most Valuable Player of the game. Their gratitude to all involved in Poyen and Glen Rose schools will always linger in their hearts! Imagine God’s heart, then, when we go out of our way to do a random act of kindness for someone every day! Every touch matters! You are loved today! (10/21/14)

On another Sabbath day, a man with a deformed right hand was in the synagogue while Jesus was teaching.” (Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭6‬ NLT)

One Wednesday night during a church service, I felt the need to take up an extra offering. Following the service, I spoke to a lady that was passing through who mentioned a need she was facing in town. Feeling prompted again, I found out her exact financial need, checked the offering, and saw that they were an exact match! And to make it an even cooler story, she gave in the offering to help someone else, never thinking she would receive it back! Imagine her surprise at the gift and my excitement to be used by God!

Just as it was with Jesus, so it is with us. Wherever you go, there are always those with needs that need to be met. You never know the Who or the What, but God has caused your paths to cross that He can use you to help them along.

So live today allowing God to direct your steps. You never know how awesome the end result will be! You are loved and useful! Be used today!
