Last Saturday night, my wife Celest and I co-hosted Grady Hospital’s Annual “White Coat” Gala with Bill and Ashley Rodgers. The event spotlights how people at Grady go way beyond the call of duty to make a difference in the lives of others.
As I watched Celest speak, I thought of something our pastor, Dr. David Cooper, said during a recent service: “Kindness is not random. Good people are very intentional about making a positive difference in the lives of others.”
I also thought about how I get tremendous satisfaction in having the spotlight shine on others, especially people like Celest and Ashley—Outstanding people who do so much good behind the scenes that no one knows about.
As leaders and difference makers, let’s double down on doing intentional acts of kindness and also having the spotlight shine on others.
