7 There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days. 8 His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. 9 When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured. 10 They honored us in many ways; and when we were ready to sail, they furnished us with the supplies we needed. Acts 28:7-10
Paul wasn’t on the island long, but word about him healing Publius’ father spread quickly. You can be sure that when he touched people to heal them they heard the Gospel message. It seemed to be who Paul was and how he operated.
People notice when you do something extraordinary for them. They notice and they tell people. Even simple acts of kindness get noticed.
The Gospel is not at all a matter of doing good for others. Often, though, acts of kindness are enough to start the conversation. And it’s always the right thing to do.
