One Book

It’s Service Thursday again.

Today’s challenge is small and simple.

Find a book in your library that has helped you in some way, and give it away.

Most of us have read some book that has affected us in a positive way. Now is a perfect opportunity to share that positivity with someone else.

You can share with a friend.

You can share with a co-worker.

You can share with a stranger.

You can donate the book to a shelter or small library.

It can be a self-help book.

It can be a religious book.

It can be a book that helps learn basic skills.

If you peruse your book collection, I’m sure you’ll find the one that’s just right.

Remember, you’re giving the book away. You’re not loaning it.

Tell the person you’re giving it to that it helped you. Be specific, if possible, but don’t give the story away or go into so much detail that they want to break away from the conversation before you have a chance to hand the book to them.

Can you find just the right book?I think you can.

Do it today, and have fun with it!

As always, thank you for reading and taking today’s challenge. Thank you for being willing to share with others and serve others in small and simple ways.

I’m confident that with your willing help, we can bring a little bit of Heaven to our lives, our relationships and our world.

Remember – Service is the Action Form of Love!

You could even take this idea one step further and register the book you leave with You might be able to see how your book affected others and watch its journey.
