Something to Ponder
By The Light: Prayers & Devotions for Daily Living, entry
for February 18th:
My Deeds Create
The Savior stepped toward me, full of concern and love. His spirit gave me strength, and he said that I was judging myself too critically. “You’re being too harsh on yourself,” he said. Then he showed me the reverse side of the ripple effect. I saw myself perform an act of kindness, just a simple act of unselfishness, and I saw the ripples go out again. The friend I had been kind to was kind in turn to one of her friends, and the chain repeated itself. I saw love and happiness increase in others’ lives because of that one simple act on my part. Embraced By The Light – pages 113-114
Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness . . .
2 Corinthians 9:10
Father, thank you for the understanding that all of your children are connected to each other. Bless me with self-awareness and self-discipline so that everything I do will create positive ripples.
Every day I start new ripples of thoughtfulness, kindness and love.
