With all that is going on in our country and in our world, kindness is more important now than ever. Kindness breaks down barriers and can even bring unity.
One simple act of kindness can mean the difference between life and death for someone. Kindness bestows value, life and meaning to people. Kindness shows people they have a voice. Kindness gives people a purpose. Kind words heal hearts and can restore faith. Kindness builds confidence and moves people forward.
Did you know God draws you with His kindness because He loves you? Jesus was kind to people and healed them because He loved them. One of Jesus' greatest characteristics was His kindness.
Titus 3:4-6 says; "But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared (Jesus), He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior."
That is good news in a world so full of unkindness.
Always remember you never know where a person has been. You don't know how much pain they carry. You don't know what life has thrown at them or what others have said to them. Always be kind, you never know what an impact that may have on someone. You may speak the only life to them they have ever heard, and it may just save their life!
Until next time,
