What Do You Do When Nobody's Looking?

On the final day of a three day road trip with my business partners, we found ourselves in a depressed area of Las Vegas.  Homeless people lined the streets with makeshift homes pieced together from cardboard boxes.

A stranger approached with bags of groceries he quickly dispersed.  He was focused on the homeless and didn't know I spotted his kind gesture as I zoomed by.  He thought nobody was watching.

Jesus often asked the people He healed to keep quiet.  He wasn't looking for fame or fortune, only to make a difference in the lives of others who were forgotten by society.  He chastised those who were seeking recognition for their good deeds.

What do you do when nobody's looking?  Remember, it's the off-camera moments that define who you are.  No matter what you've done in the past, it's not too late to do something special even if nobody's looking.
