Tell Us Your Kindness Story
Listening to the Spirit

I was at the gas station with my wife and daughter in the car. While pumping gas, a woman at a pump near me gave her son $20 to get $5 worth of gas. When he came back without any change, the woman was upset. I heard her tell her son that the $15 in change was all that they had left. I had some RACK (Random Acts of Christian Kindness) envelopes in my arm rest and I asked my wife to give one to the lady. When my wife opened the envelope, there wasn't anything in it. The envelope was one we referred to as "unleaded," meaning you had to put something in it. My wife put some money in the envelope and walked over and gave the woman the envelope. She was very appreciative after being a little apprehensive at first. When my wife came back to the car, she didn't feel quite like she had done enough so she went back to the lady before she pulled off and gave her some additional cash. To show how God works, the lady walked up to my wife a few weeks later at my daughter's track meet and spoke to her and hugged her like they had been friends for a long time. She really appreciated what we had done and promised that she would pay it forward for someone else.
