Today is National Ding-a-ling Day. No, even though is sounds like a day for calling people a ding-a-ling, the day is created by the Ding-a-ling Club. (okay, I’m just going to call it DAL Day for short, allright? not the most fun name to type). So on Dec. 12, the DAL Club members call someone who they have lost touch with, maybe from a few years ago. Maybe they could call someone at 12 noon, at 12 minutes, 12 seconds so it would be 12/12, 12:12:12. (another fun thing about today)
So why don’t you be a DAL today? Who is someone you don’t talk to anymore? Maybe an old babysitter? Someone from church? Maybe a neighbor who moved away? Why is it important to do this?
As always, it comes back to love. God loves you, exactly who you are. God loves you even though you are selfish and proud, even though you forget to pray and you aren’t really great at being thoughtful. Because of that–we love other people. How can we show it? Our actions, including reaching out to a friend today.
“I give you a new command: Love each other. You must love each other just as I loved you.
John 13:34 (ERV)
Dear Lord, You love me, just as I am. That’s amazing. Thank you. Amen.
