An Amazing Act of Kindness Changes Lives

An incredible act of kindness is an inspiration to help others in this excerpt from Mornings with Jesus 2017.

An amazing act of kindness

And you no doubt know that Jesus of Nazareth was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with power, and he went around doing good. Acts 10:38 (TLB)

Twenty-eight-year-old Eugene Yoon wanted to make a difference in someone’s life. But he never dreamed God would answer his prayer in such a dramatic way.

One day a video crossed his news feed about a man named Arthur who’d been paralyzed. When Eugene saw that story, he felt God leading him to be part of Arthur’s solution. But how could he help this young man to walk?

Eugene discovered a machine called an exoskeleton device that cost $80,000. Somehow, he hoped to raise enough money to buy one for the young man. Eugene left his lucrative job with a research company and hiked from the California border to Canada, posting videos and raising money on social media.

The first time Eugene watched Arthur walk with the new machine, he knew his act of kindness had been worth it all. Random acts of kindness are nice: spontaneous moments of generosity. But intentional acts of kindness are even better: preplanned, faith-filled determination that refuses to surrender until the blessing has been delivered.


Jesus’ actions were never random. He went about doing good, opening doors for faith to walk through, always bringing glory to His heavenly Father. Like Eugene Yoon, we, too, can make a difference by doing good if we listen, watch, wait, and ask Jesus to use us to bless others. What a way to live!

Faith Step: Ask Jesus to help you go about doing good this week. Then watch for ways that He will answer.
