With your big deeds and small acts, you inspire. Here’s a round-up of favorite others-centered finds from around the web:

Getting Egged by Mark Buchanan.

Don’t worry. The egging Mark Buchanan talks about doesn’t include a messy clean-up. Fab quote: “Most my life I’ve practiced a thin version of generosity, where my giving is only a disguised form of purchasing– I give expecting something back, some service, some privilege, some influence, some pat on the back.”

Three Things About One Word: Serving by Kathy Escobar.

Oh, not only is Kathy Escobar wise, she is uber generous and allowed me to share this post back at my place in February. The wisdom in her writing never gets old. Great quote, ” If we’re not careful, ‘serving others’ can be a way to stay protected and one-up from others.” Bam.

100 Ways to Give Back Over Summer Break by Lisa Van Engen.

We all love a good list and Van Engen doesn’t disappoint. Numbers 45, 47, and 49 all have my attention.

Teamwork: Serving God by Mel Caldicott

A post including three big ideas one which includes the idea of service beginning in the home. Favorite quote: “You may not be called into full-time ministry with your spouse or as a family, but there are times in our lives when we can bless others by serving together as a family. The opportunities this gives us to understand our loved ones better, see God working in their lives and experience fun, and fellowship together through helping others and serving God are immense.”
