I was surprised to see this note tucked in between my planner yesterday. My daughter Kyla has inserted this note as she remembered the challenge posted by the pastor (who is her dad) last Sunday.
“What can I do to make your day better?” Such a simple question that we rarely ask inside our house as all of us are busy with our own chores, our own interests and our own little corner. Because of this, we are reminded to intentionally connect to other people and do something to make them feel better.
We are called to be less self-absorbed and think of others more. Just as Jesus did as described in Philippians 2:7 “but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” This is but a simple way of loving others more and ourself a little less.
I answered by telling her I’d like to her take Charlie for a walk while she replied that she wants us to play a boardgame together. I didn’t realize that it was so simple to make someone’s day a lot better just by asking this simple question.
Now it’s your turn, tell me, what can I do to make your day better?
