At Abba’s House over the past several Sundays, I have been speaking on the subject of Friendship (I’ve even had a couple of blog posts on the subject).
With that said, tell me in a few words: What is one thing you can do for someone in your circle of friends to make a difference in their life? What is a tangible way you can share the love of Jesus with another? (Just in case you need some inspiration, I recommend referring back to my post A Love Stronger Than Death.)
Set a goal (say… the end of the month) to accomplish this by. If you’re like most of us, if we don’t set a deadline, we never get it done.
Make the decision. Decide that, by faith, you are going to reach out to that person(s).
Take the leap of faith.
Leave me a comment on your thoughts, your ideas, and maybe even a follow up on how it went. Who knows? Your idea may spark someone else to do the same (it could even start a movement). You never know what a difference the smallest act of kindness can make.

Ron, it’s always been my “personal policy” to let people know who I am and what I stand for as soon as I have the opportunity. That always kills any idea they might have about doing sinful things with me. It also affords me additional opportunities – they know who they can go to for spiritual needs. I am asked to say blessings at meals and the like because they know who and what I represent. Sometimes I get surprised with a “Will you pray for me?” form someone I would not have expected to ask me to do that, I only ask that God let me get in on some of his work in this world, and sometimes it is pretty cool.
Ron, I have been riding with a friend to TSSAA baseball and softball umpire meetings and it has been so enjoyable having a friend talking about God, going to church…. this has brought us together as not only friends, but friends in Christ our Lord….I really think it has helped him and me realize what the Lord says about two being better than one in keeping us closer to God in so many ways…he is a special friend who I would not hesistate to be there for him or his family if needed and know he would do the same for me or my family…God knew and made it happen!
