I Could Be Kinder


The three most important things in life are as he told me:

  1. Be kind kind
  2. Be kind
  3. Be kind

Kindness.

We live in a world of political and moral divide. In this day when news networks are divisive editorials and not really news reporting agencies, when relationships break, and families hurt we could use a little – no a great deal of  – KINDNESS!

The psalmist describes God as kind, “Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
 Praise the Lord! (Psalm 117). The American Standard Version says, “For his lovingkindness is great toward us;”

Kindness.

Peter tells wives with unbelieving husbands that their kind disposition may lead their husband to Christ (1Pe 3:1-4). I know that the principles he lays out for wives apply to all Christians and the influence we can have on unbelievers. We need to learn kindness.

Ten Ways to be Kind – Today!

  1. Compliment others in a meaningful way.
  2. Hold the door open for someone.
  3. Clean up someone else’s mess.
  4. Pay for someone’s coffee or lunch.
  5. Send a care package or card.
  6. Really listen to someone tell their story.
  7. Donate your time.
  8. Let someone in line at the store or in traffic.
  9. Say, “thank you” often.
  10. Be encouraging in both your verbal and nonverbal communication.

How will you demonstrate kindness today?
