More than 1,000 people share an act of Kindness.
One woman’s kindness to a fellow Starbucks patron resulted in more than a thousand others spreading the holiday-season generosity in the northwest Washington town of Marysville.A regular patron at the chain had paid for the person in line behind her a few times before, according to the Everett Herald. But on Wednesday, her good deed set off a chain of 1,013 customers paying for the next person’s drink.The spontaneous pay-it-forward run ended at 6:20 a.m. Friday, a store employee said. The name of the iced-tea drinker who started it remains unknown at the store.- Associated Press

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. One never knows when a smile, an encouraging word, or a small act will touch someone…then to touch someone else…then to touch someone else…then to touch someone else… then to touch someone else…then to touch someone else…then to touch someone else…

This it seems to me to be the ongoing story of the gospel, the ultimate act of kindness that comes from God in Christ, that goes to great lengths and great acts of kindness.
Next time you are in Starbucks why not brighten up someones life by paying for the coffee. SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! I know I will.
