WOW!. Check out this little challenge the Max Lucado has extended to the world. He suggests that over a forty day period that you can make 100 people happy and through that effort, change the world around you. You may even find that you yourself are changed! I think this is great, and I am going to give it a try. Lucado explains it well here, but the ‘rules’ as he states them are:
- Set out to create “100 extra mile moments” between February 9 and March 20 in which you intentionally seek to make someone happy by doing something more than you would typically do.
- Share your experience in your neighborhood group, class or family, and on social media at #100happypeople.
- Keep a journal in which you list the names of people and ways you tried to brighten their day. Make note of the moment. What did you do? What did you learn? What was the setting?
This could be a lot of fun. I actually have set up a twitter filter for this hashtag and it’s pretty amazing the way people have got this thing started.
Let’s do it, let’s make a difference in the people we meet!
And remember the words of Nehemiah, as he called out
“I’m doing a great work; I can’t come down.” Nehemiah 6:2
