{ Day 8 }

Who couldn’t use a cup of coffee, especially on a Monday? Consider treating the person behind you in line to their morning java.

Confession (Ouch!) I’ve chosen to forgo pay-it-forward moments because the woman behind me seemed to have it all together. Why would a woman driving a BMW with impeccable style need a free coffee? Ugh! Must I reason everything out?


One divine tap. That’s all it took to be reminded that I see only the outward appearance, like a performance being played out on stage. But God alone knows the inner workings of the heart…the playing out of our story, if you will.

Perhaps today isn’t so much about paying for a cup of coffee, but rather trusting God’s promptings regardless of what’s being played out in front of us.

Where might someone receive a “pay it forward” gift from you today? 

The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 
1 Samuel 16:7
