This is the fifth post of a new column we began, facebook Friday, where we share positive, encouraging messages from facebook.
When I saved today’s post several weeks ago, I failed to document the author of this piece, or on whose page it was posted. My apologies.
It’s short. But good. You’ll like it.
As the world fights to figure everything out,
I’ll be holding doors for strangers,
letting people cut in front of me in traffic,
saying good morning,
keeping babies entertained in grocery lines,
stopping to talk to someone who is lonely,
being patient with sales clerks,
smiling at a passerby.
Because I will not stand idly by and live in a world where love is invisible.
Join me in showing kindness, understanding, judging less.
Be kind to a stranger, give grace to friends who are having a bad day,
be forgiving of yourself – today and every day.
BE the change,
BE the light,
start today and never stop.
This piece brings to mind Jesus’ admonition from His Mountain Message.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matt. 5:14-16).
BE the light.
Happy Friday, everyone.
