Today’s thought — Kindness

The Lilacs are blooming at Cozy Acres.

Good Morning

1 Corinthians 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind;

Kind Hearts
What is your kindness quotient? When was the last time you did
something kind for someone in your family–e.g., got a blanket, cleaned off the table, prepared the coffee–without being asked?

Think about your school or workplace. Which person is the most overlooked or avoided? A shy student? A grumpy employee? Maybe he doesn’t speak the language. Maybe she doesn’t fit in. Are you kind to this person?

Kind hearts are quietly kind. They let the car cut into traffic and the young mom with three kids move up in the checkout line. They pick up the neighbor’s trash can that rolled into the street. And they are especially kind at church. They understand that perhaps the neediest person they’ll meet all week is the one standing in the foyer or sitting in the row behind them in worship. Paul writes: “When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it. But we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers.” Galatians 6:10 NCV –Max Lucado, A Love Worth Giving

Galations 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Kindness isn’t listed among the Fruits of the Spirit, but I think it fits in real close to Gentleness.

Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
