A tree is known by its fruit

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another. Romans 12:10

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves one another has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

How truly powerful those two verses are, right? It’s pretty simple, we are called to love one another. Again, Romans 13:8 says, “Owe no one anything except to love one another.” So, starting right here, right now, I’m making a commitment to start looking for more opportunities to love people. How about you, want to join me? Just imagine what a difference we would make if we played a bigger role in God’s circle-of-kindness.

To get us started, here are a few ideas of random acts of kindness. I’d love to add to this list, so please feel free to share your ideas, too!

  • Let someone go in front of you in line
  • Open the door for someone
  • Help someone with yard work
  • Share your lunch
  • Donate clothes

  • Visit an animal shelter

    1. Amen, girl!! Poor extra sugar all over everyone today and just watch what happens!! Let me know how it goes, too!! Have a beautiful day … (God is so good, isn’t he!)

  1. What I love about this is the “faith in action” part! Sometimes I forget, and I’m not proud of it. I want to be on the lookout for ways to be like Christ to my neighbor…whoever that is in the moment. 🙂 Great list of ideas!

    1. I hear you. Even today, I had an opportunity to show Christ’s love and I failed 😦 So, thank YOU for replying because I needed this reminder today, too. You blessed me and humbled me, girl! Love it!
