When I am going through a difficult season, I find it incredibly helpful to focus on others.
I like to prayerfully ask, “How can I be a blessing to someone today?” It gets my mind off my own troubles and onto being a part of the healing of someone else’s troubles.
Sounds like a good recipe for joy. 🙂
Plus, it is reflective of the true spirit of Christmas as seen in Matthew 20:28 – “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
Here are 12 easy ways to inspire you to be a part of making someone’s Christmas a little brighter.

Happy Christmas RAK-ing! 🙂
My little girl learned this song last year, to the tune of “Jingle Bells”:
J-O-Y, J-O-Y, this must surely mean, Jesus First, Yourself Last, and Others in Between!
Thanks for spreading the joy, Julie!
You have inspired me to start RAK-ing. I did it yesterday – coffee for the Salvation Army bell ringer and donation to a homeless man outside of Walmart. I’m really feeling the true spirit of Christmas!
Love love love the 12 days of Christmas kindness!
I LOVE this!
Lovely post 🙂
I will use the random acts of kindness list with our Sunday School classes.
