Intentional Acts of Kindness Turn into Awesome Experiences

My friend, who is also a subscriber, shared a personal experience recently. It’s so wonderful that I’d like to share it with you: “I stepped a little out of my comfort zone today and found the benefits to be significant. I said ‘Hi, how are you’ to a total stranger while at the super market. He walked by quickly and said ‘Not good.’ I then got behind him in the checkout line and asked specifically what was going on. He elaborated and said his sister had just died and he was very upset. I talked with him for a short while and by the time all was said and done I told him, as he was walking out the door, that I would pray for him. He said his name is Edward and then he said, ‘And Diane, too.’ While this required a little extra courage and consumed a little extra time, I’m so glad I did it. It was an awesome experience!”

  1. About twelve yeas ago I heard the phrase “random acts of kindness” in a speech. Just recently, and today, I’ve heard of “intentional (deliberate?) acts of kindness and i wonder if maybe the Boy Scouts were way ahead of their time with “Do a good deed daily”…

    I’ve also experienced situations that “demand an act of kindness”.. one example would be answering a prayer call.
