We’ve all heard of the book “Don’t sweat the small stuff” by Richard Carlson. I’ll be the first to admit it’s one of my favorite books. However, sometimes I believe there IS value in sweating the small stuff. The small moments in ours’ or other’s lives that may not seem like much, but could dramatically change the course of someone’s day. Think of all of times the “small stuff”, and a change in our behavior, could make a big difference to another person.
Letting someone with a few items get in line in front of you at the grocery store. Making eye contact and genuinely smiling at the stressed-out cashier at the same grocery store. Opening the door for the mom with the stroller. Letting someone merge in line in front of you in traffic. There are many many opportunities each day to pass along kindness to others. They may seem small, but they might make a big difference in anothers’ day.
“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
