Looking back on yesterday, I realized I turned down a chance to serve when my family went out to the store. Doh!
When we got out of the car, there were four shopping cards in different places that needed to be taken back. This store doesn’t have people bring them up all day so they rely on people bringing them back. I’m not even sure why I didn’t do it. We were in a bit of a time crunch, but it only would have taken a minute or two.
There’s not really a point to the story, except to highlight the fact that I’m going to be honest and admit when I struggle doing the very things I want to do (namely serve and love people). No one may have even noticed the shopping carts being returned, but at a busy little store with a minimal number of employees it would have been a minor relief to the staff’s stress.
