Me First

16 Aug

Sunday morning…let’s see, what’s on the calendar for this day?
Virtual church and virtual church and virtual church.
Push a button and I’m in Tucson, then Dallas, then Nashville:
blessed by each one.
But even before my virtual traveling, I am prepped by the messages on two little packets of artificial sugar that go into my coffee.  On one:  “leave a little sparkle wherever you go.” Good idea.   On the second packet:  YOU GOT THIS!  Be your best today!”  I got it, and that’s a good idea, too.  But let me translate both into the language of The Way that Jesus left for us:  “Do for others what you would like them to do for you.”
Initiate kindness.  Forgive.  Lend a hand.
Be the first to do it.  Initiate.
Me first…you, too.
