Thank Someone Who Serves

Happy Thursday!

I’ll never forget a moment around this time of year four years ago.

Our pastor at the time in Tennessee did as he often did at the end of the service and asked people to get together for prayer. I told my wife and she and I should go pray for him.

For him! 

It usually works the other way around, right?

But we prayed for him and he thanked us. He then told us that this was the first time anyone had ever done that. And this was a church with more than 700 members and he’d been doing this a long time. And no one ever took that time to pray for him.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, you can have that same impact on someone, so here’s what I want you to do over Christmas.

Thank someone who serves the community.

Send a thank you note to a pastor. Or the people who run the homeless shelter. Or to the head of the local domestic violence support center.

You don’t have to be personally impacted by these people. You’re just thanking them for their service to the community.

It takes a little effort to do it. But the impact that it makes in the community will be more than worth it.

With Gratitude,
