Wednesday in the Word-Do good unto others

Galatians 6:10 - As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

I love this scripture. Such a wonderful reminder to us that as Christians we are to do good to everyone but especially those of the faith.

I love doing for others, how about you? I can't always do all the things I would like to do. But, the thing I have learned over the years has been that even the most simple acts of kindness mean so much.

It can be a smile, a pat on the back or a great big hug. It can be sharing your lunch with someone just because you can. It can be a batch of cookies or a meal cooked for a family. Sometimes the greatest gifts received are simply our words of encouragement. 

Within the last week I have received two batches of cookies from friends who brought a smile to my face and a lift in my spirit simply because they were thinking of me. 

May be all have the mindset of thinking about others. There is always something we can do to bring a smile to someone else. 

I decided to bake some cookies this week for my Bible Study gals. Hopefully it will bring a smile to their face as well as comfort to the tummy! 




Iced Strawberry Cookies

Ingredients:
1 Box of Strawberry Cake Mix
2 eggs, slightly beaten
8 oz. Sour cream OR 1/2 cup of oil
Mix all ingredients just until well blended. Scoop 1 1/2 teaspoons of batter and roll into powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 6-9 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Icing:
1 cup of powdered sugar & 2 Tablespoons of milk
Mix together until smooth. Ice cookies while they are still a little warm. Before icing sets, add colored sprinkles.

Good to the last bite!

  4. My biggest problem is follow through. I will think of something I should do for someone, then never get around to doing it. But you are right, little things can brighten up someones day and it doesn't have to be more than a text asking how they are doing.

  5. Cindy, I agree. When we do something out of love, it makes a person feel cherished and cared about...no matter how small we may think it is - it has a HUGE impact in that persons life. No act of kindness, no matter how small is wasted. So happy to be one of your bible study gals...cause I get a cookie tonight!! Johnna D.

  6. I just love cake mix cookies! I've used the gluten free cake mix. It does have 16 grams of sugar, though - the regular gluten free sugar cookie mix has only 9 grams. Crazy. They look delish and the thought behind them makes them more delectable!
    Joy!

  9. Hi, Cindy. Cookies are door-openers, aren't they--or heart-openers! :) What a sweet post (the pun wasn't intended, but hey...).

    Thanks for commenting on my winter picnic, and for faithfully pinning...I really appreciate your taking the time to do both! ~Zuni

  11. I have been hearing so much about this subject the past few days, including last Sunday's sermon! Love and kindness never fail!

  13. I love the way you tie in a post with the Word. It's really faith in action. That happens to be one of the verses I studied with my Bible study class in our current unit about "one another". I make a cookie recipe what uses box cake mix as a base with those additional ingredients, but I never knew that I could substitute sour cream for the oil. Now, I want to try it, and I really want to try it with the strawberry version you made. They look yummy.
