Think of one specific person with whom you interact and plan to do something special for them. Describe your experience.
When I saw the Impact question for this week, I got consumed with the idea of GETTING something nice for someone. When I stopped to think about this concept, the materialistic concept of giving completely convicted me. God calls us to be the 'hands and feet' of Christ, not the 'iPod or gift certificate'. My special thing this week was to give encouragement to those serving with me. I wrote 2 encouragement notes with Tim's cards attached, addressed it to the 2 people, and left them anonymously in the office. These people have been really inspiring to me since I've been there, and they execute what it means to be a servant and have the attitude of selflessness.
