Nothing we have and nothing we pursue will ever be as valuable as what we do. How we treat others, the love we give and the generosity we sow into someone’s life will always fill our hearts with joy and bring honor to the Lord. We never want to forget that human interaction is far more impactful to a human heart than electronic processes, however wonderful they may be. We need to make ourselves available to have conversations with people, to show through our actions and our interest… the love of God.
August is a month where we want to be out there… involved in our communities and being the salt and light to everyone we can. To be extra kind, to do good things for others and to make someone’s day! This Saturday, August 4th, Be a Blessing will be partnering with Love In Mankato by donating diapers to be given away during this community event, as well as donating our time to volunteer! Open to anyone, this event focuses on giving to others from what God has given to us. Each year this event draws my heart in because of how important it is to reach out beyond our normal schedules, our comfortable friendships, and our natural tendencies. Putting ourselves into a position for God to use us, however He sees fit and then watch what He does in someone else’s life.
I would like to encourage you all to look around in your community this month to find ways in which you can serve someone else. Someplace you can volunteer or help another person or organization. Give someone a ride, surprise a stranger with a compliment, help the lady with 3 kids and a cart of groceries, sow into the life of a child… there are so many ways in which we can give of ourselves without spending a dime!
So this Saturday we’re going to try coming to you live from the event here in Mankato at Sibley Park as we’ll also have a table out there giving out information about who we are. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello… I would love to meet you!
Hope you have a super productive month… get out there and go bless someone!
