Matthew 20:28 "For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve others and to give his life as ransom for many."
It is so easy to go about thinking about what somebody else should have done. To think how somebody else should have been more polite. But we shouldn't worry about the somebody else of the world and what they should or should not do. We need to pay attention to what we are doing for other people. Anytime we have the chance to do something for somebody else we should not let that chance pass us by. We should consider that chance an opportunity, a privilege. We should be happy that God put that opportunity in our path. When we do for others we may never really know how much that moment means to them. But if we pass that moment up, it may be a moment that could change their lives. We just never know. What we do doesn't have to be big... it can be a smile, a kind touch... lunch for a troubled friend, a bowl of soup for somebody that is sick. Kindness is probably the single most important gift we give to anybody. Sometime and we never know when it may just be a kind word that turns some body's life around completely. I have often said that I never want to be the final nail in some body's coffin. If somebody crosses our path that is to the point of ending their own life we can may just be that person that gives them hope of a better tomorrow or we may be that person that makes them give up completely.... all with the words we speak... with the look on our face. Sometimes the smile of a stranger can make all the difference in a persons day. We need to serve others in all that we do... starting with a smile.
