Does it have to be random?

I guess telling him the Beverly tastes good wasn’t exactly an act of kindness.

Why do random acts of kindness have to be random? Why can’t they be a part of our every day life?

I have a friend who has been out of work for over 5 months and didn’t have a good day yesterday. Sure there are many who have been out longer and are in more dire circumstances. I’m just concerned that they may be losing hope. So I posted the following message on Facebook:

Folks, no matter where you stand on the political front, there are some good friends out there who are still out of work and need your support. That support can come in many forms: Take them out for a meal, or invite them over for a movie or take a trip to the mall. You don’t have to spend a dime on anything, but the investment of your time can be priceless.

You with me on this?

So, are you with me? Just the name “random acts of kindness” means (to me) that these acts are not regular. Why not make them regular and with a purpose?

There’s still a lot of work that can be done. Waiting for someone else to make the first move may be too late.

    The main theme of my 9th and 10th grade religious Ed classes for the next two years is, “What you do matters.” There are no random actions with God.

    BTW: We all love Beverly. Yummy stuff!
