Ask people how you can pray for them and/or help them… then do it.
Share the Word
Leave a devotional book or a Bible on the table at a restaurant.
Share your talents
Teach a Bible study. Offer to do hair and nails for the high school girls at church for prom. Babysit for young parents so they can enjoy a date night now and then. Perform car maintenance and handyman chores for the elderly in the church and your neighborhood. Tutor a child or children struggling in school. Help a young couple set up a reasonable budget. Teach others how to garden, sew, or whatever it is you are good at.
Share your stuff
Donate sports equipment, clothing, and household items to shelters, children’s homes, and other organizations. Host a Bible study in your home (even if you aren’t the one teaching it). Invite the youth group to enjoy the pool in your backyard or the horses on your farm. Give away part of your garden’s produce.
Share your money
Give generously. Purchase items to send to missionaries in third-world countries that they would otherwise not have access to. Sponsor a child in your church who might otherwise not be able to go to church camp or other similar event. Purchase pizza or fast-food gift cards to send to college students. Put together care packages for servicemen or the homeless.
Share your time
Sit and read to an elderly person. Take someone to and from their doctor appointment or their chemo treatment. Volunteer to help the church secretary with some of her duties at church. Offer to prepare class materials for Sunday school teachers. Read to the children at a daycare.
Invite a college student to your home for dinner. Fix snacks for the high school youth group to enjoy during their Bible study. Fix a meal for a new mom, the people who just moved into the neighborhood, or someone just home from the hospital. Bake cookies, bread, or pies to give to first-time visitors at your church.
Pray for those in need
Don’t generalize your prayers. Be specific. Pray for Tommy who is experiencing the rigors of boot camp. Pray for Paige who is experiencing a difficult pregnancy. Pray for Ellen and Carter who are trying to be patient while waiting for the call to travel to South Korea to finalize the adoption of their little girl. Pray for the leaders of our nation by name.
Send a birthday card and/or gift to a lonely widow or widower. Let them know their special day is still special. Call someone who is feeling under the weather, going through a difficult time, or experiencing a grievous loss.
Be kind to strangers
The absolute best way you can serve both God and others is to be kind. Smile. Don’t snap at the sales clerk for taking too long. Don’t demand to have your way. Don’t berate the telemarketer. Don’t be a rage-filled (or even irritated) driver.
