Kindness post # 7 – sometimes your greatest gift is time

My post tonight will be brief.

I may expound on it a little more later but I just wanted to share that sometimes your greatest gift you can give – the greatest kindness you can show – is time. Giving of your time, or at least offering your time is a way that you can show someone that they matter. They matter so much that you would like to give them a piece of your life that you can never take back. You see them as a worthy investment of that time.

Yes, at times we need to prioritize who we give our time to. Even God rested on the 7th day…so everything within reason and not neglecting people that should be a priority in your life…we should certainly give of our time to others and not be selfish with it. By giving of our time – we just might make someone’s day a little brighter. I had the opportunity to do just that a few times this weekend and I have tears right now as I type thinking of how humbling it is that God would smile on me in such a way that He would use me to spread sunshine in someone else’s life.

Tomorrow’s Monday. It’s going to be rainy here – but no matter:
Bring your own sunshine wherever you go.

And remember to make time for others – it is a genuine act of kindness that has remarkable impacts and rewards.

In Christ,
Amy
