There’s a street that I drive down to get to work and there is an elementary school nearby. During the day, a crossing guard stands at the nearest traffic light and with every car that passes by from any direction she smiles real big and waves. No matter how many cars drive past, she makes sure she is waving at all of them.
As I’ve observed this pleasant crossing guard, I find myself looking forward to driving by her so that I can return the wave. Her kindness towards everyday people passing by is such a simple gesture, but it brightened my day and reminded me about the little things in life that make an impact. She could be bored to tears, staring at her phone, or simply stand there, but she chooses to be a ray of sunshine to a bunch of strangers.
That is how we shine the light of God in our everyday life. We do the little things like smiling, opening doors for others, asking how are you, and all of this can be apart of the fruit we bear as children of God.
