“The deeds you do may be the only sermon some persons will hear today.”
– Francis of Assisi, Italian Catholic friar and preacher

A few weekends ago, I saw the movie “Heaven is for Real”, based on a true story where a four-year-old boy experienced a visit to heaven related to a near death experience. His father is the local pastor of their community church. The community in which they live (and the pastor’s family in particular) were tested through considerable economic and medical challenges along the way.
Of particular note were the many small and not so small good deeds the pastor and members of the community exhibited on a daily basis as they lived and practiced their beliefs.
What deeds can and will you do today to demonstrate your highest held values, in order to contribute to others in your professional and personal life?
Pay particular attention to other people’s good deeds taking place in your community, to notice the daily sermons all around you.
