God blesses those who have a heart to simply do good. In fact, Jesus was an example of one who simply did good. In His ministry, day in and day out, He went around healing the sick. He caused the blind to see, the lame to walk and the deaf to hear. He went around looking for ways to make any and everyone’s day better.
And we’re called to follow in Jesus’ foot steps. How can you make someone’s day better? How can you make a difference in the lives of others?
When you go to and fro’ throughout your day, look for a way to bless random people. In other words, look for opportunities to bless the life of someone you do not know.
You see, it’s easy to love your friends. It’s easy to be kind to those who are kind to you. But what would it be like if everyone simply went around doing good? How would it be if everyone did good deeds not out of selfish ambition but for the empowerment of others?
There are plenty of opportunities to bless the randoms. You never know, someone out there may be having the worst day. You can make it better or worse. The bank teller who serves you, say something to make them smile or laugh. The cashier at the grocery store that you see all the time, greet them by name with the most sincere warmest greeting.
It’s all in the little things. You can be of service to someone in the smallest and seemingly insignificant ways. When you smile at a random person who passes you by, that is enough to brighten their day for the better. When you hold the elevator door open for that person who seems to be in a hurry, you never know, that could be the one opportunity to save their day. They might be seconds away from making a threatening deadline.
When you let that elderly person go ahead of you in line at the grocery store, not only are you honoring them but you’re honoring God almighty. In return, God will bless you with long life and your days will go well.
The question is what are you doing for the least of these? In other words, what have you done for those who aren’t as fortunate? What have you done for the random ones who are the servers among you- the ones who do the “dirty work” who get looked over? Jesus said, “what you’ve done unto the least of these, you’ve done unto me.”
Look for ways to bless the randoms. Do good to all men. Not only are you blessing people but you’re blessing the almighty God. And in due time, He’ll lift you up and bring about favor, increase and promotion as you charge forth on your journey of life!
