Tearjerker Warning: One Commercial Captures The Power and Reward of Small Acts of Kindness

I ran across this short video recently. It is actually a commercial for Thai Life Insurance. It absolutely mesmerizes me. What a beautiful picture of a person shining light into his world.

I have recently been teaching through the book of Philippians. Paul begins chapter 2 with these words:

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others (Philippians 2:1-4, NIV).

Paul goes on to teach that when we do that, we are following the example of Christ . . . and that we will shine like lights in this dark culture. While this commercial isn’t teaching Christian doctrine, it certainly captures the spirit of those types of teaching. Imagine how this world will look if we all committed to live with this type of selflessness.
