When Pop Stars Do Right – a lesson in P!nk

What is right to be done cannot be done too soon.

Jane Austen, Emma (vol. II, ch. 4)

Here’s how that looks in action.

Pink was in concert and stopped in the middle of a song to comfort a little girl crying in the audience. She did it in her own style, she did it without calling undue attention to herself – which is hard to do in front of a few thousand people who are all there for the sole purpose of seeing just you – and she focused on the girl and gave her the encouragement she needed. (If you haven’t clicked on the video, please do. I’ll wait.) As this article says, the girl was too shy to come up and receive Pink’s treats herself, but you can see her at the bottom edge of the video when Pink tells her, “You look beautiful.”

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. (Galatians 6:10.)

Yes, let’s.

Questions:

When is the last time you acted on the opportunity to help someone you didn’t know?

When is the last time someone did this for you?

    It’s funny how such a small gesture can mean so much to someone. I Recently I was standing in line at the store and the guy in front of me got out line so I could my groceries on the belt. Again it was a small gesture of kindness and consideration but it meant so much to me, because the area I live in is a dog-eat-dog type of place. Kindness in any form is a breath of fresh air and revives the soul.

      When I see Pink hand over the stuffed animal, I think of how many toys she has thrown on the stage every night. She can’t keep them all. But to stop the song and think of giving it to a hurting little girl takes that throwaway toy and makes it precious for everyone.

      That guy in the store did the same. He took that moment in the checkout line and made it precious for everyone.

    Can you imagine all the meanness and cruelty that could be stopped dead in its tracks and its momentum removed if more people did the right thing like Pink did?
