As we were driving to work yesterday, K-Love was talking about the Love Dare. Lisa and Eric on the morning show were going to do the Love Dare challenge. This challenge is for 40 days and starting 1/6, it will take you to Valentines Day.
I thought how cool that would be. So my challenge to you and me is to try it for 40 days. However, I do not want to limit it to spouses/significant others … what if we extended it to family, friends, neighbors and yes, strangers. How would it affect the world? Or your part of the world?
Today’s challenge: Be patient again today and do at least one kind thing that someone else wouldn’t expect.
What is desirable in a man is his kindness. (Proverbs 19:22)
This could be holding a door open for someone or letting that car in that’s trying to cut you off and not displaying that hand gester while doing it or pay for that car behind you in the drive up, just to name a few.
Yesterday’s challenge was to be patient. Don’t say anything you’ll regret.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient,
bearing with one another in love. —Ephesians 4:2 NIV
This was a real challenge for me. Hubby was telling me about his day and I was getting upset. I’ve been down this road with him many times with many of his jobs and I was getting mad and angry. I was about to spew awful words and remembered the challenge. Then I saw this beautiful sunset. As I was commenting on it, he stopped so I could snap this picture.
Seeing the beauty removed the words, although it did take me a while to deflate my anger.
