Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever.–Margaret Cho
 
It is no secret that life is “crazy busy” for many of us, and a slumping economy isn’t doing much to cheer anyone up, either. The good news is it doesn’t take large sums of money or grand acts of kindness to make a difference in people’s lives. Don’t get me wrong; these gestures are great for those who can manage to do them. At the same time, every generous, compassionate act has the potential to change people’s lives for the better.
 
So, why not smile at people you pass on the street? Hey! Why not even get a little crazy and say, “Hi!” to them? Why not make eye contact with the homeless folks you see, greet them like the children of God they are, and yes–if you can–spare some change?
 
As the power of God flowed from Jesus when he healed the woman with the “issue of blood” (Mark 5:25-34), may the power of God’s compassion flow from each of us in our daily interactions with both those we know well, and those we do not know at all.

People often say with pride, “I’m not interested in politics.” They might as well say, “I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future, or any future.”
    — Martha Gellhorn, writer/journalist   (1908-1998)

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.
