Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
This past week I heard on a Christian radio station a challenge for all the listeners.
Basically, the challenge was that when going through a fast food drive through such as Dunkin Donuts, not only pay for your meal but for the car in back of you. In addition, give a simple note to the employee to give to the car behind you that states something like, “Have a blessed day”.
When I heard this challenge, I’ll admit I was a little critical. I was thinking like “yeah right, in NJ?? People won’t do this...Maybe in Tennessee, you know that southern hospitality. But in NJ, yeah right.”
However, a listener called in to the radio station and told her story of how she was the recipient of that challenge. As she was talking you could hear how touched she was not only by the kind gesture but the note given to her as well. She said that morning on her typical routine of stopping at DDs (Dunkin Donuts) before work, that day she was feeling really depressed and hopeless. But, when she found out her meal was paid for already it made her feel a little better, and then when she read the note left behind for her that read, “ Jesus loves you” that made her feel even better.
I mentioned this story, just to say that demonstrating just a small token of God’s love to someone can go a very long way.
Stay in God’s peace, not in pieces =)
