Kindness

kind-ness [kahynd-nis] – noun; the state or quality of being kind, indulgent, considerate, or helpful - generous, good

Showing consideration to others.  Being nice.  Saying please and thank you.  Spreading joy through a smile.  Opening a door.  Extending compliments.  Asking another, “How can I help?”  This character trait is self-less and giving in simple ways without expecting to receive anything in return.  There is a movement that produces over 2.1 million search results on Google – Random acts of kindness.  Wikipedia describes it as a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual.  If everyone could live in this state of kindness, the world would be at peace.  We cannot rely on others to make the world a better place – kindness starts with you.

Reflect:
Recall a time when you were the recipient of an act of kindness, how did it make you feel?

What are 5 small “random acts of kindness” you can give away today?

What prevents you from taking action with the lingering thoughts in your head to show kindness?

Verses:
Ephesians 4:32 ”Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”

Proverbs 12:25 “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”

Quote:
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” - Mother Teresa
