OK, so you may not have a fancy dinner or musicians from Carnegie Hall to surprise two strangers with, but what can you do to make a difference in someone’s life?
Live your life on purpose! Use your imagination. Gather some friends together. Plan a mini event that will minister validation and joy to someone.
Here are four more ideas to make a difference with your life
1. Visit a senior care facility and play cards with some of the residents.
2. Buy a simple lunch at a local deli and take a co-worker on a picnic during your lunch hour.
3. Gather some musician friends together and go play some music for a neighbor that needs to know somebody cares.
4. Invite some neighborhood kids to Vacation Bible School at your church.
Whatever you do, make it fun and a surprise for the recipient. You’ll be smiling the whole rest of the week.
