Will you be a Johnny today?

Great service comes from the heart!

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45)

What simple thing can you do every day at work or home to share God’s love?

One of my greatest delights is preparing these devotionals. When I first started these on July 1, 2006, about 280 people were receiving them daily. By January 1, 2007, this number had increased to 353 and now it’s up to 454. More significantly, they have inspired at least ten people to launch there own daily reflections. As a result, about 4,000 life-changing messages are going out daily.

That’s more than a ten fold (1,000%) increase – with God’s children reaching out to bless people in their own sphere of influence. The power of compounding is enormous. Even the difference between a 10% and 20% annual growth rate becomes enormous after ten years.

I’m especially thrilled to see the quality of the messages being sent by my web clients and prospects. Recently, I read a reflection by Jerry and Sharon Graham titled “An Uncommon Blessing.” In that, they share a link to a short video with a true story about a grocery store bagger with Down’s Syndrome who changed many lives and the success of his store with simple acts of love and kindness.

To be greatly inspired by what one person can do through simple acts of love, watch the short PowerPoint movie at today’s Link of the Day

It is easy, fun, and will inspire others.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
