It’s electric? The Ford F-150 Lightning all-electric pickup truck is already one of the hottest vehicles on the market, with 200,000 reservations so far.

Actually, the F-150 Lightning isn’t even available til this spring.

*It’s so popular, Ford is allowing dealerships to sell the vehicle with a “no sale provision,” meaning buyers cannot sell the pickup for a profit for at least one year after purchase. Violators could face court action that includes blocking the transfer of the title.

*The Ford F-150 Lightning has dual motors, all-wheel drive, and more torque than any other F-150 produced. It’s robust enough to power a house during a power outage, potentially for days. https://www.newsnationnow.com/business/ford-restricts-resale-of-f-150-lightning-amid-demand/?nxs_link=article-image_2_title_4&email

Random Act of Kindness Day is this Thursday (Feb. 17)

A way to spread positivity by showing goodwill towards others.

-But don’t be thrown off by the word “random”, because acts of kindness can be very intentional, very biblical, and a perfect opportunity to live like Jesus.

Showing generosity to others is also rooted in what it means to be a Christian.
