Melissa Morris Ivone started “Operation Nice” in July 2008 after a gentleman in her building motioned her into the elevator ahead of him. “That one minor gesture brightened my day!” she writes. “I started to think, ‘What a great world this would be if everyone had consideration for others.'” Operation Nice encourages readers to post their own stories of helping others, and even created badges and note cards to help spread the word.
As Christians we’re called to consistently put others before ourselves; Philippians 2:4-8 says, “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death–even death on a cross!”
Being “nice” is a great start, but worship is a consistent attitude of service to others–even if we’re never recognized on a website.
