the wave

"Be kind and compassionate to one another..." Ephesians 4:32

How could it be?  Elaine had only lived in the neighborhood for a few weeks, yet she appeared to know many.  When walking, her response was always the same. She waved to every car passing by. 

But how did she know everyone?  She even waved to every car approaching from behind.  How did she recognize them? Was she familiar with the sound of their car... the purr, the clunk, the sputter, the roar?
Then it finally clicked.

Elaine waved the same to everyone -- whether she knew them or not.  A random act of kindness extended to all.  No favoritism, no expectations, no questions... just pure kindness.

A handy lesson to remember and practice.  Thank You, Father.

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
