Are You a Godsend

You never know when some small act of kindness on your part will spread and grow into something you can scarcely imagine. Each time you give someone a helping hand, you’re a Godsend. Each time you give a generous tithe, you’re a Godsend. Each time you pray for someone in need, you’re a Godsend. Each time you post something inspiring on a Christian web site, or mail a Christian greeting card, you’re a Godsend.
In the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven, Jesus made a bold prophesy, asserting that His tiny band of followers would spread His message throughout the world. Today, there are almost two billion Christians, or about one out of every three people, world-wide; and our numbers are growing by nearly 69 million souls a year. That’s an average of 131 new Christians per minute. By the time you finish reading this post, 328 people will have joined the faith through birth or conversion.

It all began with twelve ordinary men and a handful of devoted women. Up until the moment that those disciples decided to step out in faith, nothing distinguished them. They were not wealthy, powerful, well-educated or politically-connected. But they were faith-filled and faithful. By their example, they showed us that
nobody is unimportant in God’s eyes. We all have the potential to do great good in His name.

You never know when some small act of kindness on your part will spread and grow into something you can scarcely imagine. Each time you give someone a helping hand, you’re a Godsend. Each time you give a generous tithe, you’re a Godsend. Each time you pray for someone in need, you’re a Godsend. Each time you post something inspiring on a Christian web site, or mail a Christian greeting card, you’re a Godsend.

People are often attracted to the faith when they meet a Christian who performs little acts of kindness that make their day.

Is there someone who needs to hear from you today? Is there some small act of kindness you can perform that will make others feel like you were sent from heaven above?
