During these 21 Days, we’re intentionally following the example of Jesus in being kind to others. Every day, your goal is to give one intentional act of kindness to a family member as well as a stranger or friend. Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of these acts, do it with a heart of thanks, honor for others, and intentionality. 

Ps - Grab some "You Have A Purpose" cards in our church lobby to leave with your acts of kindness.
