Today I read a blog written by a young lady who I have known since she was a teenager.
When said young lady graduated from high school, our church helped her purchase a new guitar. She was attending worship school, and needed one that would better meet her needs as a maturing musician. In her blog she stated that our kindness and confidence in her changed her. I always knew she appreciated that new guitar. But I never knew the extent of how the gift affected her.
I was blessed being a part of gifting her that guitar (it was actually gift certificates so she could choose it herself) and I was blessed again in the knowing that our churches kindness “changed” her. It CHANGED her. Never underestimate the power of your words, gesture or gift- when given out of love, kindness and genuineness. You never know when your actions will inspire another human being.
