“And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward”.
(Matthew 10:42 NIV)
Buy a box or tub and leave it by the coffee machine at work, or at the school reception. Add a cheerful ‘help yourself’ note, with the hashtag #40acts (and your name if you want to encourage a response).
Arm yourself with chocolate and hand it out to those you meet as you go through the day.
Keep an eye out and an ear open for God to prompt you about who to approach. As you offer them the chocolate, add an explanation about 40acts and see what conversations open up about Jesus.
What did I do?
Arrrggghhh! Yet again I was unprepared for Chocolate Tuesday! How does this catch me by surprise every year?! *facepalm*
Dashed out to the supermarket, bought chocolate (creme eggs and chocolate espresso beans) and gave them to Rez to take into work tomorrow. (Q: Didn’t creme eggs come in boxes of 6s? This was a box of 5).
I did buy a ‘pay it forward’ coffee at Starbucks whilst I was there – and the barista thanked me as they had all been redeemed and had none left to give out – so well timed too. Yay!
