2 Thessalonians 1:3 "We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing."
Often when I'm in a restaurant I leave small "thank you" notes for the waitress or waiter when I give my credit card for the bill. The recipient often comes back all smiles.
A little while back, one waitress came back with tears in her eyes. "You don't know what this did for me," she said. She said it had been a tough day for her. She didn't elaborate, but that little "thank you, you did a great job" lifted her out of the doldrums.
Sometime this week, would you please give someone an unexpected boost? A thank you, a hug, a prayer--it might be just what they need to make it through another day.
Prayer: Lord, You give us so much. You give us grace to cover our mess-ups; You give us strength when ours is flagging; You hold us together when we feel like falling apart. Father, we'd like to return the favor by blessing someone who needs a boost. Point us to those people who need Your blessing. Give us the words to say, the action to take to make that happen. Thank You, Lord.
