Kindness is a gift that everyone can afford to give. Be kind to everyone, especially yourself. God brings people in our lives for a purpose of healing.
God’s kindness is powerful. It changes things. Redeems, makes whole, and gives new life. Yet His kindness doesn’t just provide fire insurance. His kindness takes up residence in us the minute we surrender to His love.
God even wants us to be kind to our enemies, which is one of the hardest things to do. But, in the end, we will be rewarded if we aim to live a good life, spreading joy and thoughtfulness wherever we go.
“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you”Ephesians 4:32
Lord, some of Your people are hard to love. They can be moody, mean, difficult, and impossible to understand. They blame me for things I didn’t do and have expectations I can’t meet. Sometimes I wish You hadn’t put them in my life.
I need You to show me how much You love them. Reveal what You see under the surface, where they’re hurting, and tell me how to make a difference. Thank you for giving me your patience to be kind and compassionate when I don’t have my own and for loving me when I’m the one who’s difficult in someone else’s life.307
