Our church recently held a major Easter outreach. My self-appointed job was taking a large bag of candy and greeting people as they made their way across the parking lot.
As a family with two young girls decked out in their finest Easter dresses approached me, I knelt down to talk with the girls about the event. I told them my job was pre-candy. I was giving everyone a piece of candy to hold them over until they entered the event. A fun job to have!
They thanked me and as they walked away I heard one of the girls say, “Daddy, why was he so nice?” (Nailed it!)
Her words made me smile, but also convicted me. Why don’t we take more opportunities to be nice?
