It started with a conversation.
“I became aware of it from the guy that mows our lawn,” Colin says. “I was just talking to him outside one day, and talking about his different customers around, and he kind of pointed across the street and down [a ways] and said, ‘Well, that guy was my customer, but he just lost his job, and he can't pay me for what he owes me. And now he’s going to have to quit the service.’”
Colin had never met the neighbor, but he knew he couldn’t just stand idle while this man, his neighbor, struggled to get by.
“We’d been talking, my wife and I, about how we’ve just got too many toys,” Colin said. “I mean, it was almost embarrassing. Two boats, nice vehicles and a nice house. We both had good-paying jobs.”
Eventually they came to the conclusion that this was a real opportunity to live out the idea of not just caring for themselves and their own kingdom, but of making the most of the situations where they could actually use their own resources to help advance the kingdom of God.
“So we asked the yard guy how we could help. We just said, ‘Okay, here’s an envelope with some cash in it.’ And that brought him up to date, and gave him another month’s worth of mowing. Just helped him out. And I told the lawn guy, I said, ‘Just do it anonymously. I don’t even know the guy.’”
Later that night, the phone rang.
It was the neighbor.
Though he was embarrassed at being found out, he listened as his neighbor thanked him for his generosity.
“He called and he said, ‘Hey, this is so-and-so, and I just can’t believe you did this.,’ and I just said, ‘Well, that’s what we do for each other.’”
Colin closed out the conversation by telling his neighbor where he and his wife attended church, and invited him to come along if he ever wanted to. **ALT: Colin closed out the conversation by telling his neighbor that he and his wife attended Clear Creek Community Church, and invited him to come along if he ever wanted to.**
But Colin’s gesture didn’t just impact the neighbor.
The lawn guy had a brand new baby with his wife and was depending on his clients in order to make enough money to support his family.
When Colin handed him the envelope, the lawn service guy was stunned.
“He couldn’t really talk much,” Colin says. “He was just like, ‘I’ve never seen anybody do anything like this before. It’s just so cool.’ He was pretty blown away."
