On a walk recently, I passed by a recently-renovated neighorhood fast food restaurant. Emblazoned on the roof was a banner that invited all to try “our double drive-thru!”
A “double drive-thru?” Hmm… Do we order in two parts? Order side-by-side with another car? Do we automatically get a double order with that? Or, is this one of those cosmic hints that we see in our world that sparks thoughts beyond what we would usually think, especially on a routine walk around the neighborhood. What if, I thought…
What if we applied the concept of “supersizing” beyond things alimentary?
What if we took the best attributes of ourselves, the best things in our lives, and supersized them?
How about supersizing our activities – the exercise we do, the good deeds we engage in? Or, what about supersizing our friendships so that we spend even more time with people we love and, naturally, fold more wonderful relationships into our days?
How much farther along our spiritual journeys would we be if we supersized our prayer lives? Scripture reading? Worship and fellowship? How many more needy people could benefit from our bounty if we supersized our giving – time, possessions, money?
What if we supersized our smiles? Laughter? Hugs? Compassion?
Oh, wow…what if we supersized our kindness?
You just never know what God will put in your path when you walk outside your front door. But if you remain open to looking and listening, well, as I found, even a fast-food restaurant can yield some supersized ideas that just keep on getting bigger!
Blessings for the day
