A Good Deed Repaid

So often we hear of the negative and hurtful contributions of mean spirited people in this world.  It's a rare occasion when stories of kindness are shared.  If you're local to Winnipeg, you may likely have heard of this story already.  I was so moved when I heard about it, I knew I just had to share it here.

A semi-retired Winnipeg couple is breathing much easier these days after the help of a perfect stranger.  Please take a moment to read the story here.  I promise it will restore your faith in the common goodness, and acts of kindnesses of the people around you. 

That extension of yourself is exactly what Jesus is talking about in Luke 10:27, when he said "love your neighbour as yourself."

Have you taken the time today to really see the world around you?  Is there a way you can make someone's day a little brighter?  Is there a simple act of kindness you could extend into the world around you? 

Be blessed today friends,

♥ S. Pin It
