Pay It Forward
What a great reminder that we are in this community thing together and that means we need to look for ways to pay it forward. In 2 Corinthians 1:3,4—
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
We receive comfort from God so that we can pay forward that comfort to others. It works with coffee and other material blessings as well as with the emotional and spiritual support Paul discusses. John Donne said, “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” God places us in relationship with others so that we can bless them and they bless us. We are to pay it forward.
