I believe it is the intention of most people to be kind to others. There are very few exceptions, at least as far as I can see. Some people seek out opportunities to be kind more than others, but I believe everyone has good intentions deep down inside.
As long as the Holy Spirit abides in us, we need to strive to be the sort of person Christ wants us to be.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
- Galatians 5:22-23
When my blood sugar is either too high or too low, it's easy for me to be a bit snippy towards people. So, even on days when it may be more difficult to get my blood sugar under control, I still need to remember to be kind. I need to be kind on purpose! If I can pay a kindness forward that has been done to me, then it's a good day!
I'm thankful that I have a loving heavenly Father who wrote the book on kindness. Christ is our ultimate example of kindness. As we fast approach the season of giving thanks for all our blessings, may we all realize that we have so much in our lives to be truly grateful for.
Be Ye Kind.
This poem seems appropriate today. We do share the love of Christ with others because we care. It's the ultimate act of kindness to share His love because it has done so much in my life! Lucinda Berry Hill, author of "Coffee With Jesus" wrote this and I hope you enjoy it.
We can learn and we can grow
Some of you are going to love me for what I'm about to announce! Today is NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY!!!!!!! If you indulge, it's my advice that you have your cheeseburger just the way you like it and even though it's a great temptation to put the fries beside that burger - I would skip the french fries. You could, however, bake your own potato fries. That's cool.
