Recently I had the privilege of being introduced to our new church family. Our lead pastor, David and his team decided to create a video to introduce me and then allow me to speak to the entire church (All 4 services, 7 if you count prison and East location video venues). In all honesty, I was completely humbled by the gesture and the weekend.
Last night we were sitting at dinner at a place we go every Monday night as a family. It’s called Sickies Garage! On Mondays kids eat free, the arcade games are free, and the kids get free ice cream. So with Becca and I sharing a meal it’s the cheapest dinner we can get for our family of 4.
After completing our meal our waitress walks over and says, “Your meal has been taken care of by a family across the room”
“Oh wow, thanks. Is it ok if we thank them personally or they would rather not make a big deal about it? “
”Let me check”
She returns a few minutes later, “Something about celebrating a new pastor and they just wanted to be a blessing”
We walked over and thanked them for the meal and in that moment I was reminded of this verse
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.””
John 13:35 NLT
And to that I say, YUP!
Its the small things we do for others that often mean the most.
