Thanks for stopping by today! Many of you have found your way here via the Encouragement for Today devotion I have running at Proverbs 31 and on Crosswalk.com. If you haven’t read it yet, you’ll be lost here today. So, to take a look at it, click here. Don’t forget to come back for the giveaway!
Also: I am currently gathering a group of women who will be my cyber circle of friends who will help my ministry by praying for requests I send them and by being gals off of whom I can bounce ideas or perhaps ask for feedback on book titles, stories or examples that go with my content. It will be done by email.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “Cyber Sisters” in the subject line. The actual email can be blank if you are in a hurry. Thanks!
Well, what ways do you see believers being “lumped”?
Besides the examples I gave of the waitress, the college student and the teenaged girl, can you think of specific times where someone has held a belief about Christians in general? Was there truth to the view?
What instead are some ways we can live out the Bible’s command to be “considerate in all you do”?
Well, to enable one of you to be considerate and scatter some kindness to a stranger, I’m offering a giveaway today. One commenter will receive the following:
~Two $10 Target gift cards, each bundled with a pretty ribbon and a dark chocolate bar. One is for you and one is to give to a complete stranger.
~A signed copy of my book A Life That Says Welcome: Simple Ways to Open Your Heart and Home To Others.
Now, it is simple to enter. Just leave a comment on any aspect of the topic of this devotion. Or, if time is tight, just say, “I’m in!” You’ll be entered in the random drawing.
There is just one slight hitch, you must be willing to give one Target gift card bundle to a complete stranger and then email me a report. Who did you give it to? What was their reaction?
Comment away! Winner announced Monday–on Labor Day–when I’ll have the last giveaway of the summer!
NOTE: Congrats to the winner of Rachel Olsen’s book It’s No Secret. Here is what she had to say when I asked her who the lucky gal was:
“Karen, Let me first say that it was such a delight for me to hear which chapters interested each of them, and what they would order. I seriously do want to meet each of them at Starbucks – just so I can sip and try all those yummy sounding drinks! I normally do the random number generator to pick winners so it’s totally fair. But tonight I did something different on a prayerful whim. I asked my husband to choose a winner. And he chose Norene Bartkowski.
Please, all the rest of you sweet ladies, don’t’ hate him – he’s a good man!”
Okay Norene, send your mailing address to me at email@example.com so we can get you you prize!
Okay ladies….leave your comment and you too could be a winner!
