This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
