We have our apartment cleaned every two weeks by a team of three cleaning ladies. Today they came right after a big water spill, and I asked if one of them would clean it up for me, as my arthritis acts up. The one who volunteered got an extra tip.
I think the Lord gives us an extra gift for extraordinary behavior, though it comes so subtly we never notice. It all happens so naturally, we don’t recognize it as a gift. That’s the way of the Lord.
Of course, you can never outdo the Lord. I mean every breath on a crisp morning is a gift, and then there’s so much else.
