Acts Of Kindness (AOK)
God tells us in Ephesians 2:10 that “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
Simple things like cookies and treats for our civil servants, Easter Baskets for our shut-ins, Food Bank emphasis, toiletries for inmates, Blessing Baskets as needed, cleaning supplies for SAVE and diapers and baby items needed for our food boxes go a long way to show the love of God to those in need.
We should remember that small things done with great love can change the world. A random act of kindness is a simple, effective, and fun way to show the love of Jesus to the people around you and all it takes is a servant heart to be a part of AOK.
Matthew 25:40 – And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ (NKJV)
