In yesterday’s blog entry, I mentioned one of my favorite quotes from Bishop Desmond Tutu: “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
What is your “little bit of good”? Do you have neighbors? Bring them cookies. Do you walk in your neighborhood? Pray as you walk. Are you homebound? Adopt a college student and be an intercessor for them, praying with and for them. Are you strong? Mow someone’s lawn for them. Do you have a spare hour? Visit someone in the hospital—or just go to waiting room and pray. Are you grateful for something? Send a note of thanks.
Now think of the result of all those “little bits of good” together. Imagine someone who has had Jesus followers bring them cookies, pray for them, visit them in the hospital, mow their lawn, send them a note of thanks. What do you think their impression of Jesus might be after all of this?
