Today’s Daily Prompt is “Kindness of Strangers” (check out original post).
One time of kindness by a stranger that really sticks in my mind was the time when me and my husband were at a store (Home goods store of some sort, I believe). A lady walks up to us and says that The Lord had told her that she should give us some money ($20). At first we (at least I) was uncomfortable. I’m not the best at accepting gifts and such from others. Perhaps it’s the part of me that feels like I don’t deserve or something. At first I think we (my husband and I) were reluctant, but in the end we did – Thanking her profusely. In truth we were having financial difficulties at that point and that $20 was a huge help to us.
Looking back, it was an amazing thing to see someone listening to what God was telling them to do…. To go up and give to a total stranger.
I’ll leave you with this: Hearing God’s Voice: Milk and a Baby. Whether it’s true or not (or something I think is a good idea to do) I don’t know, but still… A Powerful Message.
