Drive Through Encounters

By: Amy Davidson [Kenton, TN]

McDonald’s® is an American staple.

Sixty cars an hour come through the drive-through with one to four people in each car—potentially 240 people per hour. At that rate, during a five-hour shift standing in one spot at the drive-through window, I come into contact with 1200 people.

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 (NIV)


What do I represent when I serve people—from the teenager who wants his fries hot and his Hi-C® cold to the lonely retiree who doesn’t care as much about his senior discounted coffee as he does the interaction? As I go about my day, I try to be aware that every encounter is a divine appointment orchestrated by the Creator of the universe.

THINK ABOUT IT: Will the people you meet today see Jesus in you? Ask God to help you discover possibilities and purpose in every encounter.



Act on It

Get together with church members and neighbors, and think of ways to make your church and town a refuge for people in need. If you have a chance to visit with refugees or the children of refugees, sit down and talk. They, like you, have stories that could change your life. Will you listen?
