Grateful Hearts: Kindness

A spirit of kindness is a great gift; a fruit of God’s Spirit.  Do you value kindness and make it a goal to share some everyday?  Barbara Johnson reminds us, “the attitude of kindness is everyday stuff like a great pair of sneakers.  Not frilly.  Not fancy.  Just plain and comfortable.”  We need to put on kindness each day and get comfortable sharing it. 

Grateful hearts know the value of kindness; therefore, they are generous with their time and praise.  Smiles and thoughtful deeds are a part of each day.  It is important that we realize our relationships suffer when we do not use kindness.  Making others feel important is a great step towards making strong connections; sincere appreciation can move relational mountains.  Christ is our “kindness” role model; kindness is an expression of love.  So, let’s imitate the kindness of Christ and touch some lives, today.

“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all.”  I Thessalonians 3:12
