I came across this the other day. Maybe you did, too. Originally posted in Pinterest, Barbara Bunchuk tells of her granddaughter’s encounter with a security guard at The Magic Kingdom. The guard asked for the autograph of the granddaughter who was dressed as a princess. No brainer, princesses are famous. The girl was thrilled, if not surprised. The book contained other such autographs.
You may think this is cheesy. I think it is God-breathed.
What if we were to treat every person as if she or he were someone really special? The guard was not fueled by a paycheck or fame. His real, agapic love came from within. This was natural.
How will you treat others, especially those who challenge you or who cannot repay you, today?
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40 (NIV)
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2 (NIV)
Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Romans 12:13 (NIV)
Change the world with the next person you encounter.
