Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The other day at the market, a woman recognized me and we struck up a pleasant conversation. Later on when I was checking out, she approached me again and asked if she could pay for my groceries. I protested, but she insisted. I said okay on the condition that I could right there pray a blessing over her in the check-out line, which I did, and she happily received it. It was an amazing encounter. Well, as we were leaving the parking lot, I spotted a homeless family holding a sign asking for help. I would not normally stop, but I knew,  I had to pay what just happened, I had to pay it forward. And so, I gave the homeless mother a money gift and told her that it was from the Lord Jesus. Today God will bless you in many ways. And when He does, ask Him to show you how you can pay it forward; how you can pass on the blessing.
