Ask God to bring to mind a person in your life who is either lonely, someone society deems as less-than-lovely,
or even hard-to-love. Pray for that person, asking God to bless them and to soften your heart toward them. Then, do one thing to show that person God's unconditional love in a tangible way.
**Detonate a love bomb!** It might be harder to minister to our own family than to others, because folks we hold most dear can also be the people with whom we experience the greatest conflict. Practice showing your affection for them and your gratefulness to God that they are part of your family.
**Scatter kindness in secret.** Good works are *not* our ticket to heaven. They are our marching orders here on earth. Choose a person to whom you can show love, help financially, or toss a little kindness their way. However, do it completely anonymously, so that nobody else will know — only God.
