40 Acts of Kindness (Day 8)

Today is a chance to, quite literally, bring life to someone. Giving blood is such a potent image of generosity, because it’s giving away something so critical to ourselves – our actual lifeblood! And that can train us into sacrificial generosity in other ways, too.

Easy (ish): Find out about giving blood at www.blood.co.uk and make a one-off trip.

Medium: Start giving blood regularly.

Hard: Give blood as often as you can.

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38 NIV)
