I love doing things for others way more than doing things for myself. The feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction is so much greater. One day I received a phone call from a woman asking me how much I would charge to do a couple of honeydews around her house. She was given my phone number from someone that I had helped a couple of months back who said that I was a very helpful young man. I told her that I would come to take a look at what she needed to be done and we would go from there. When I arrived she proceeded to show me all that she was wanting and it was adorable. She was a little tiny older woman, maybe in her mid-80s and the first thing on her list was to change out a light bulb. The other items on the list were similar in regards to taking very little time to get done. I ended up not charging her for anything, and had a great time speaking with her about her life and husband passing. I could have charged her for these little things and left, but instead made a friend and blessed her and myself that day. I have met more persons with these divine appointments from God. These are perfect opportunities to love thy neighbor by sharing God’s love. These moments also open up a time to speak of the gospel and all God has done in your life. Dear Heavenly Father thank you so much for this beautiful day thank you for the opportunities that we have to love that neighbor. Please give us a Divine appointment today to show your love to others. Not only to bring others to you but to increase our faith in you. In Jesus mighty name Amen!!!
