crazy little thing called love

my cuppa milk

With it being Valentine's Day and all, I thought it the perfect excuse for sharing yesterday's faithbooking lesson in a timely fashion. The lesson itself was based on THIS RECENT POST... the idea being, love requires more than just words - we are called to act.
Little children let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 1 John 3:18
With that in mind, what are some examples of love in action? Here are a few ideas I stumbled upon:

1. Send a note of encouragement.
2. Smile at a stranger.
3. Generously tip your waiter or waitress.
4. Be a courteous driver.
5. Leave a gift for your mailman.
6. Open a door for someone.
7. Return your grocery cart.
8. Send “Happy Valentine’s Day” gifts to the single women in your life.
9. Let someone go ahead of you in line.
10. Pay for someone else’s meal in a restaurant or drive-thru.
11. Pick up trash you didn’t drop.
12. Give up your parking spot.
13. Give up your seat.
14. Keep items in your car to give away to those in need.
15. Refold or rehang clothes in a store.
16. Get to know a neighbor.
17. Be nice to a telemarketer.
18. Donate books to your local library.
19. Listen to someone who needs to talk.
20. Share your umbrella.
21. Leave an inspirational book at a coffeehouse.
22. Babysit for free.
23. Pay for someone’s groceries at the market.
24. Leave treats on your coworkers’ desks.
25. Give city workers a bottle of water.
26. Give someone a gift you know they’ve wanted for a while.
27. Invite someone out for coffee.
28. Invite people over for dinner.
29. Get to know the cashier at a grocery store.
30. Leave cookies/coffee/tea with someone along with the note: You deserve a break!
