There are no great things , only small things with great love. Happy are those. – Mother Teresa
In the bible they have many stories of small acts of kindness that made a big impact.
There are saying , slogans , t.v. shows ,and movies that encourage people to show acts of kindness to others
When thinking on this topic there was actually a commercial that I had seen years ago popped in my mind. The commercial is called “Unsung Hero “. This commercial received over 68 million views!
Link to the commercial : Unsung Hero
In this commercial this man shows small acts of kindness throughout his day.
It was sweet and touching , but as the video played out people that he helped expected him to be there for them everyday right on time.
This is where most Christians become weary and frustrated in doing good.
When do we get a break ?
When do get a reward?
The pressures we as Christians face to always feel the need to be the helping hand and going our your way for others.
We often never receive the same love we give out.
So, we may ask God what is the point?
In the end of the commercial the man sees the young girl in her school clothes. Day after day this man gave this little girl money to go school. The man seemed shock that after constantly giving and giving he actually made a difference in this young child’s life. He gave and his reward was seeing the young girl not asking for money , but in her school uniform.
We become tired of showing kindness and being givers , but what if we stop right before we made a difference in someone’s life? We may never see our reward.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galations 6: 9
