A wee act of kindness can go a very long way.
At our Saturday Morning Welcome Café I noticed a young boy of about four years’ old bringing some food items with his parents to the foodbank collection box. Well, this did not happen just once, but every Saturday morning when he comes for his dance lesson in the halls.
I spoke to his parents and they told me that Jamie (let’s call him this way) noticed the collection box in the church when they came for refreshments at the café and asked his parents about it. when he learnt what it is about they had to go to the shops and by items for the food bank.
Now this became his Saturday morning routine. Jamie goes for swimming early in the morning, then he takes his parents to one of the supermarkets and they get food for the foodbank. Jamie became a regular giver.
How wonderful is that! A four year old boy already being generous in giving in support of others. How far can he go?
Jamie is an example and encouragement to us, for Jesus said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’ (Matthew 18:3).
Have you got a wee act of kindness too? Tell us about it.
