A Little Kindness
A little kindness can go a long way to revive a bleeding soul.
Give me kindness any day over money. Kindness uplifts and gives happiness but money can’t buy you happiness.
Kindness cannot be misunderstood, it is simply kindness.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Many years ago I made up my mind to pray to God for kindness from people and to always ask for God’s kindness to come upon my life. I constantly say to the Lord, “ Lord I need to experience your kindness constantly in my life.” A lot of people had been very unkind to me and I just got to a place where I knew I had to pray for kindness.
Kindness is a component of love, and love without kindness, is no love at all. People misuse the word love and sometimes lust can be mistaken for love but when you drill deeper and think about loving kindness or kindness, love becomes clearer. Kindness cannot be misunderstood, it is simply kindness.
A lot of people have suffered abuse, violence and trauma. Believe me, these did not come from kindness but from cruelty and wickedness. Kindness gives emotional comfort, support, relief and healing. When you see people that have been battered by life, offer kindness. It is only kindness that will heal, uplift, renew and revive a discouraged, hopeless person.
May we not deny each other kindness because kindness is a function of love and for love, we were created. A little kindness can go a long way to revive a bleeding soul.
