You may have heard in the news about 8-year-old Alex McKelvey, who, along with her family, completed 600 acts of kindness to honor her grandmother, Linda, who passed away in 2013. Some were bigger gestures, such as leaving a $100 tip for a restaurant server, but some were smaller things that most of us would be able to do ... picking up litter, leaving quarters taped to vending machines, donating magazines to emergency rooms, or helping to paint a local YMCA youth center. And Alex isn't done ... by 2016, she hopes to have completed thousands more good deeds. What a great example of the love of Christ in action!
A thought from the Word...
I John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
