Teach us to give and not count the cost. Ignatius Loyola
Each day we have time to give. This morning I was in a cafe. A woman came in and seemed a little lost. She ordered her coffee and sat down alone. She turned and look at me and I gave her a big smile. She smiled back and seemed to relax in her chair. I gave nothing that I couldn’t do without. I don’t really know if she needed that smile but I gave it anyway. It made me feel good.
We don’t always have to think about giving away costly things. We can give a smile, a helping hand, a kind word. We can afford to do this every day.
Lord, remind us to give of ourselves every day. AMEN
