Have you ever thrown a pebble into the water?
I love watching the ripples slowly move outward in circles, and how they go on and on and on until they slowly fade.
Isn’t that sort of what our lives are like?
The girl at the coffee stand. The person we talk on the phone to fix the computer. The lady we help with the groceries. The guy who comes and repairs the dishwasher. The person we work for. The little kid who hides behind his mommy’s leg, and mumbles a hello.
We come into contact with hundreds and hundreds of people. Some of them we see often, others we never see again.
Shouldn’t we use these opportunities to show the people around us the love of Christ? Shouldn’t we spread this grace that God gives us? Wouldn’t Christ have reached out to these people, even the little wallflowers no one seems to notice? We don’t have to necessarily say it. Our actions will caress hearts more than words ever could.
