Generosity begets generosity

The Lent 40 acts challenges to ‘Do Lent Generously’ are going well so far.  I loved the video connected with today’s challenge to ‘Devise a surprise’, so thought I’d share it for those who aren’t following 40 acts.

I can’t possibly come up with such a generous surprise for anyone myself at the moment, but it’s still fun trying to think up a few surprises I can spring on some of the people around me.

So far, 40 acts has challenged participants to put together a list of people to bless during Lent, to get to know the neighbours better, to pick up litter and/or recycle to help improve the local environment and then to devise some big or small surprises for other people.

imageWe’ve still barely started with the 40 days of Lent this year, so head over to and sign up and join in.  You’ll also find lots of inspiration over on Twitter.  Just use #40acts.

Together, we can all do our bit to make the world a better place between now and Easter.

    • Thanks for the comment. Yes, I agree. I didn’t mean to imply it should only be during Lent. But it’s a good season to give out a bit more than usual for 40 days and perhaps then it might become an all-year-round habit for all of us.
