Simple Acts of Kindness

Pastor Glovioell Rowland"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

"That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:" (Matthew 5: 43-45a)

The other cars nearly side swiped him, but I let him in. Were those few extra seconds so impossible, my friend?

The bus driver was merely trying to get back into traffic; it wasn't a sin!

Simple acts of kindness are a rarity, once again.

It's not an act. And, I don't feel entrapped.

As a matter of fact, it keeps my humility intact!

No matter where I'm at, there's something more loving I can unpack!

One day, a car parked in front of me had the meter go empty.

I filled my meter with coins, and then, as I walked along.

Put money inside that meter because: It's a $40.00 citation buzz.

This is nothing for you to shout from the rooftop!

But it is little actions like these that make people's mouths drop.

Can you tell a frantic shopper, "Take my place in line. You look like you're in a hurry, and I have a little more time!"

Is denying yourself, daily, a crime?"

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Matthew 16: 24)

Dear Pastor Glovioell,

Am I to be a doormat for ‘certain' people? There are always a group of people trying to take advantage of me!

Do I have the word "Fool" written cross my forehead?

It gets me down. I get so depressed-I listen to the ‘blues.'

Signed,

I Don't Look Dapper in Blue

Dear I Don't Look Dapper in Blue,

Why not do much more Praising for what you have, Dude!

Let nothing, or no one put you into a funky mood.

Life is too precious for you to stew.

So let's live happy and healthy because of what Jesus went through.
