Today was a fabulous day for me. A really wonderful thing happened to me. I won't go into the details, to protect the privacy of the person who did the really wonderful thing for me. But I immediately decided that I needed to pay it forward. So I have made sure that a really wonderful thing happened to someone else today too. I also don't really plan to stop with just one person in my pay it forward efforts either.
Why am I telling you this without the details? Well because I want to talk about the why, not the what.
I truly have always felt that my life has been blessed by God and I try to remember to live a life that shows I am thankful to God for all the gifts in my life. Because my life is blessed I try to share those blessing with others. Not only in a financial way, but also in a testamentary way. I have always believed I was called by God to share his word and while it may be something most people would never do in business, it is something I have always done.
Sometimes it's just little simple ways, like explaining I can't take a Sunday morning showing appointment because I have a prior obligation to teaching Sunday School. (I'm in my 25th year of doing that) Other times I have invited people to church when they have purchased a weekend home on Lake Sinclair. On occasion I have also be led by God to give people specific messages. More than once these messages have been for clients I was working with at the time.
In America it's become politically incorrect to promote religious beliefs in business. Businesses don't say Merry Christmas or Happy Easter or put up displays for religious holidays for fear of offending someone of another or no religion. If my sharing my belief system prevents anyone from doing business with me, so be it. I love God and I'm not afraid to share that.
I'd like to challenge everyone who reads this post to do a kind thing for someone in the next week. In a world with so much hate and evil, perhaps if we all do something kind that in in turn gets passed forward and so on the world will be a better place. God Bless.
