OK Christians, can you give us a random act of Christianity? (inspired from another post)

I was responding to another post and thought of some of the small things I do or have been done to me that shows a Christians love

For instance, one day at Church I forgot to write my check. The man was very nice and patience and waited for me. He didn't get mad I slowed him down, he just smiled and waited. Once my daughter was holding a candle that broke and a lady behind us helped her out.

  • We secularists call them random acts of kindness. They're not limited to Christians, in case you thought otherwise...

  • A while back, our priest told us a story about a person who had a bumper sticker that said "think peace" she cut him off on the highway and flipped him off. We all laughed at the story but he had a good point to make as well. Not an act of Christianity, but a reminder if you are going to advertise it, at least act it out.

  • I think an act of Christianity doesn't just go for what we do for each other.

    I helped a single mother in my apt complex with food, electric, and partial rent. For three months while she was unemployed. She was not a Christian, she practiced her Indian heretige and was a medicine woman.

    I once broke down in an intersection, No one would stop even cops just drove past. I had my dd in the back seat. I did not know what to do. I prayed and prayed. To my surprise some one pulled up behind he was covered in tats and peircings. He pushed my car off to the side, and help me with it. When we couldn't get it started he wanted for my ride to show up. As he was leaving I said god bless you, he said thank you but I am atheist so I will just say have a fulfilling live. We laughed and he left.

    You see any one can perform a Christ like act not just us Christians.

    At no point in time in this question, or ever in my life, did I say athiest cannot perform good acts. I asked Christians because I wanted to know how Christians show their love. You know the song, "and you will we are Christians by our love, by our love"

    I wanted examples. Thank you so much for giving me your example of how you perform random acts of Christianity.

    I pointed that out because I have never personally seen an act of Christianity from a Christian besides my self. The ones I have seen or interacted with are to self absorbed. Also you could learn from non Christians to by asking whant random acts of kindness they have experienced or witnessed.

  • back to my story well we were stranded out there in snow no cells miles from the nearest house when a truck with a marine pulls up behind us and trys to pull us out well that didnt work and he ended up getting stuck as well. lucky us though 2 suvs pull up and they took the 3 of us in and they decided to go forward in the snow that was kinda nerve racking well it took us 2hrs to go 15miles and we got stuck in the snow once the highway went from paved to dirt to a lil road along a fence but we made it to the next town and the gas station and our new lil marine friend called a friend to come and get the three of us and his friend put chains on the tires and we ended up going back by the fence to get some of our things and they took us to the hotel to wait for my SO. so luck they were so willing to help us....
