There is an FM radio station here that plays what I’d call contemporary Christian music. It’s referred to as Joy 98. Evidently, they’re running a promotion right now along the lines of paying it forward.
At any rate, Sunday I needed to stop and get gas on my way to the evening service at church. It’s the “tight” part of the month so I had $20 to spend. I noticed a strange thing … a couple of stations had gas about 20 cents/gallon cheaper than other stations selling the same gas. So I stopped at one of the lower-priced stations. I went inside and asked for $20 on pump number whatever.
The clerk handed me a little card that said “You’ve been Joy’d.” He said another customer had come in and left $20 for the next person to buy gas so I could put my $20 away; my gas had been paid for.
I don’t know who that customer was but I left the station feeling I had truly been blessed.
