Toilet Cleaning Considerations

cleaning toilet

I just came back with teams doing a restroom cleaning outreach. I seem to have some sort of touch with this outreach – in other words, I am rarely turned away when I approach business owners/managers. (I don’t ask permission – I simply say, “Hi! We’re here to clean your toilets for free – no strings attached…” It’s difficult to turn that deal down.)
One of our teams was turned away by a number of the businesses they approached. They were disappointed – not surprisingly. I am more philosophical about such things.

I believe we make quite an impact with the offer to clean a toilet, whether we actually clean the toilet or not. Those we approach to serve are profoundly touched regardless of the actual serving that goes on – or not. We give store owners and managers a lot to think about when we walk into their presence with His presence and offer to serve them in a menial way. It’s not every day that someone comes to you with such an offer. I believe we stun them toward God no matter what their outward response may appear.

Steve has spoken, mentored and modeled to churches and leaders around the world with the simple message that anyone – regardless of their gifting or experience – can be involved in bringing God’s loving kindness to others. His first book, Conspiracy of Kindness has been translated into several languages with more in the works. His first book has sold over 300,000 copies. Altogether his books have sold over 500,000 copies.
