Random Act of Kindness

"And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward."

Or what about a warm cup of coffee?

I went for my Dunkin Donuts hot french vanilla coffee with cream and sugar this morning. You typically place your order to a talking sign and then move your car up and give your money to an actual person. Today the lady informed me that the driver ahead of me had paid for my coffee. She also told me to have a "blessed day".

Who knows if she was a follower of Christ? She probably had never heard of the book Random Acts of Kindness or seen the movie Pay it Forward. Or maybe she has. Whatever the case, she made my day - no strings attached. What a concept huh?

Talk about culture shock.

Well, there! Very much makes up for the Starbucks experience. If you ask me (and you didn't but I'm going to tell you anyway) the Starbucks person left herself wide open for the obvious! And, in my opinion (which you also didn't ask for), Starbucks regular coffee NEEDS the extras for it to taste anywhere near good. Ok, I'm done ranting now. :)
