Reflection for Oct. 12, 2014

Simple acts of kindness can ease affliction for others

by Sister Agnes Fischer

-- You paid for my prescription from the doctor.
-- You brought my family food when my husband was laid off.
-- You stood up for me when I was accused unjustly.
-- You visited me when I was sick.
-- You helped me find a job.
-- You gave me a ride to church and to the grocery store.
-- You found help for me to pay the gas bill.
-- You waited patiently until I could pay the rent.
-- You comforted me when my mother died.
-- You allowed me to work for you even though I had to bring my child along.
-- You carried my groceries to the car.
-- You raked the leaves in my yard and kept my sidewalk clean in winter.



God will never outdone in generosity. Thanks for reminding me of that.

Very well done. Cool. It should be preached in all the churches -- no other commentary needed. 'Nough said. :+)

Agnes, this is great. Makes me think of all of the things I can do to help someone. Thanks for a thinking reflection!

What a powerful reflection. Thank you for it.
