Kindness

Acts of kindness, being kind, come from hearts that are loving. To be around kind people is pleasant, because they are good and gracious. So many times, acts of kindness can take people by surprise and turn an encounter into something that is good for everyone involved.

32 Be kind and loving to each other, and forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ. (Ephesians 4:32 NCV)

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. (1 Corinthians 13:4 NCV)

It is by God’s kindness that we are saved and given the hope we have of eternal life.

4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior was shown, 5 he saved us because of his mercy. It was not because of good deeds we did to be right with him. He saved us through the washing that made us new people through the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:4-5 NCV)

Father, thank You so very much for the precious kindness You have shown me, so that I am confident of my place with You as my Lord and Savior! My desire is to show kindness to those I come in contact with, starting with my husband, my children, and my grandchildren. Please help me to do more, and do better, with this. AMEN

God, thank You for teaching me. As I grow older, I will continue to tell about the miracles You do. You are loving and faithful. Psalm 71
