I demonstrate God's love by being attentive.

Today I am attentive to the many ways I can be of service to others. I make time to visit a family member who has been ill or a friend who is grieving. I help a neighbor find a lost pet or attend to a child who needs a special moment of care or attention. I welcome opportunities to be of service, and I am rewarded with experiences that uplift me and others.

I tenderly offer my care, patiently give my time and thoughtfully demonstrate God's love by being attentive to the needs of others. As I serve, I receive even more. Seeing a smile returned fills me with appreciation. Any gift or attention I may have given to another blesses me abundantly in return.

Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights.--James 1:17
