Kindness changes people and points them towards God. what if we were able to be kind to multiple people by paying to discount petrol to a $1 a litre and when people ask we tell them this is what Jesus would do if He we here.. It’s sharing Gods love in a practical way. Romans 2:4 says “ In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.”Romans‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Great idea Darren.

Perhaps a way to iterate this is to model it somewhat on the “pay it forward” campaign of Hope 1032 radio of a few years ago. As I recall, people would pay for the “food” of a customer after them at McDonalds - it may have been done at the drive through. They would explain to the cashier that they were “paying it forward” as part of the Hope 1032 campaign. Beneficiaries would call and leave a message on the radio station that was later broadcast.

In this context, it might be possible to partner with a particular petrol station chain. A generous motorist might say that they were paying it forward for Jesus because of a Salvos’ facebook campaign.
