Acts of Kindness

Small things done with great love can change the world. A random act of kindness is a simple, effective, and fun way to show the love of Jesus to the people around you.

That’s what our A Little Something Extra to Show You God Loves You cards are all about. We don’t only want to spread kindness, but we want to spread kindness with a purpose. Using these cards helps the recipient connect your act of kindness to God’s love for them.

Below are some ideas to get you started. With each act, simply give an A Little Something Extra to Show You God Loves You card to let someone know they are noticed and loved by God.
