Today is National Answer the Phone Like Buddy the Elf Day.
I dare you to answer the phone like that… though most people these days just text, so you may have to actually call someone, then say it to them. Maybe you have a friend, and aunt or uncle who it would make smile?
People smile at random things like this–just answering the phone in a fun, silly way makes the day more fun, right? Small little things that bring joy.
Around Christmas, people treat each other better–even if it’s not for Santa, people still have the holiday spirit. You may hear stories of how people buy coffee for the person in line behind them at Starbucks, or others buy groceries for the little old lady.
What about you?
What can you do that will bring joy? How can you make someone smile today? No really, take this one seriously. Even if you don’t have money, what can you do? God tells you to put other people in front of yourself–go do that.
3 In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves. 4 Don’t be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too.Philippians 2:3-4 (ERV)
Dear Jesus, Give me eyes to see someone who I can bring joy to today. Forgive me for just doing what makes me happy. Amen.
