Today we had a "reverse offering" at church. The sermon was on generosity, and as a practical activity, a couple at the church donated $10,000 of their own money to be distributed to everyone at our church and another sister church. We were to use it to bless someone else. We couldn't give it back to the church, we couldn't keep it....we had to use it in a way that we saw fit.
They passed around envelopes and inside could be a $1, $5, $10, $20, or $50. Jacob and I both received a $1 each. We talked about how we were going to use it. Pooling our $2.00, how many people could we bless with this?
Occasionally, when I arrive there is a "free" cart because someone forgot to get their quarter back....such a small thing but it always makes my day when it happens. Jacob and I have joked before about "freeing the carts" at Aldi's before, and we decided that is how we'd use our $2. With our 8 quarters, we can make 8 people's day a little brighter.
So tomorrow I am going to go to two stores and free carts. What small act of kindness could you do with $2? How can you brighten someone's day with a small act of generosity?
