Smile…It Works

I live in an area of the world where kindness seems to be fading away fast. Then it happened. I was driving into the office. Traffic was light, but there were still times people had to merge into my lane. Even though I could have hit the pedal and made the person next to me get in line behind me, I slowed to let them in.
Normally, people just merge in and keep going like I had to do this. This time, however, the driver actually gave me a wave of thanks! I was shocked. I didn’t do it for the recognition, but it was still nice.
Kindness. It oozes out of those who listen to and follow the Spirit. I had every right to keep my place. Yet, in following Jesus, the Spirit enabled me to express kindness and it touched someone’s life.
I know this sounds trite. But how often do we go so focused on life that we can’t hear Jesus in the simple things, like driving to the office? Following Jesus in the small things can lead to huge results. I know it put a smile on my face!
