We’ve all seen stories where a gas station customer pays for someone else’s gas, or a good Samaritan in a grocery store pays for the next person in line. At a Tim Horton’s in Winnipeg last Friday, a chain reaction of paying it forward was set off lasting for three hours. A total of 228 drive through customers paid for the person in line behind them. What’s more Canadian than Tim Horton’s and hospitality, eh?
I mentioned the History Channel’s upcoming mini-series The Bible in a post yesterday. I had been putting it off for several days, and it was this devotional at Our Daily Bread on the endurance of God’s word that motivated me to act. There’s also a bit about a Bible museum being built by the owners of Hobby Lobby.
Christmas Day has past, which reminds us that God is with us. Take this thought with you into the New Year:
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. -Hebrews 1:1-4
Happy Monday and Happy New Year!
And finally this guy. This is a “prayer” we’ve all said before.
