“This day in all you do, do it with kindness. For it is in kindness and tenderhearted love that I am found. Reach out through acts of kindness and I will be found of you.”
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you (Ephesians 4:32).
I once heard about a group of Christians who formed a committee to criticize and bring a lawsuit against a particular ministry because they didn’t like some things. Now, I don’t know all the details of the story, so this is not to say who was right or wrong in the situation. However, what I do know is that when we lash out in anger or backbiting and create attempts to tear down one another, we are missing one important ingredient—kindness. God isn’t interested in our great position on the issue when promoting our opinion requires us to resort to hateful gestures. Instead, God looks for kindness, especially when we don’t feel like being kind. We should find tenderness in our hearts rather than be cold and harsh, especially when we think we are right. Decide how it would feel if others treated you the way you treat them. It’s always good to err on the side of kindness, because one day you may be on the side of needing the kindness. Do something kind for someone today. Without question, you will find God right there participating in
it with you.
Dear Lord, teach me how to walk in kindness today. I ask You to forgive me for treating others unkindly at times. Give me a tender heart today and show me how to be a person who is kind. I know that if I sow acts of kindness, I will reap the same. I thank You, Lord, for that truth today. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
