Dear Father in heaven, I don’t want to be another piece of litter. Please make me a Blue Bonnet or an Indian Paint Brush.

This is what Jesus did. His kindness made no sense to those who did not want to know Him. His greatest kindness on the Roman cross, still " makes no sense". As His followers we are called to be as He is ... To do good because of our love response to Him, paying it forward as it were.

Thank you so much for this article. This confirmed that good deeds will always triumph over evil. I recently moved into a retirement community and quickly became very active as a director. I made it my mission to be nice to everyone around me and to check on my neighbors taking them to the doctor, prepare a meal, or just sit and have lively discussions. Well, those deeds of kindness did not go unrewarded. Three days ago I had foot surgery and unable to get around, and the love shown me by these residents was wonderful; even my 93 year old neighbor walked up flights of stairs to sit with me, called me every hour to check on me, others brought water, food and anything that I needed. This confirmed that good will always triumph over evil. I pray that God will continue to give me a spirit of caring for others.
God bless you in all you do.

Powerful point : committing `senseless` acts of kindness.
Doing good with no reason at all!
What a message! Like evil doesn't need sound reasoning neither does good.
Great lesson for me I will try to commit acts of goodness with no reason at all.

Count me also in with the millions who are committing acts of humanity! What a blessing! Thanks Pastor.
A very powerful article William. Thank you. This is what Jesus declared in Luke 6: 27-31. "Love our enemies, and to do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withold your tunic either. Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. And just as you want men to do to you, do to them likewise." This will greatly defeat inhumanity in this world when we apply them in our everyday behaviors. My prayers is that we diligently seek His power to empower us to behave this way. May God continually bless you Williams with many more insightful articles of inspiration. Cheers!!!
Thank you all for letting God's love shine through you in a world of pain and suffering. God still has His people all over the world and there is still much to praise Him and to be thankful for.
"The whole earth, wrapped as it is in the darkness of sin and sorrow and pain, is to be lighted with the knowledge of God's love. From no sect, rank, or class of people is the light shining from heaven's throne to be excluded." - Prophets and Kings, Page 719
It is our hope that more people learn to care for one another.

Nice sabbath brethren. Remember crimes against humanity is in our thoughts and what you utter daily.

Care is the greatest wonder of the world. Through love and affection, care was made manifest through Jesus the son. His heart is touched with our grief and he smiles when he sees sunshine in our souls. Blessed Sabbath.

Most certainly Bro. I too will be joining you in committing senseless acts of kindness. God bless you and keep you.
Thank you for the article well said, we should always be looking for opportunities for acts of humanity, thank you so much for reminding us,
I remember watching Roots and thinking how can humans treat other humans in such a way. our God is the only hope He can change our heart to a heart of flesh and really become human!!
