For the first 100 drivers it was their lucky day. They each got five free gallons of gas – thanks to a local church. It turns out you can get something for free these days. All they had to do was show up at the gas station in College Park, Maryland. Here’s what happened.
Maryland Christian Fellowship Community Church held the free gas give-away at College Park Auto Service on Rhode Island Avenue. Volunteers also cleaned windshields, in addition to pumping the gas themselves.
Five gallons doesn’t seem like a lot, but the church’s pastor says every little bit helps. “It was amazing to hear the stories,” said Jeff Warner. “Those five gallons of gas made a huge difference to people. For people to wait a couple of hours for $20 of gas, it stresses how important the need is.”
Jesus said that when we bless others, we bless him. The real test of character is what you do when no one is watching. You don’t have to wait for your church to do a free gas give-away. You can do random acts of kindness on your own – starting today.
Anyone can hear a sermon. The world is waiting to see one.
