We all could use a lot of kindness throughout our day. I honestly can not imagine there being anyone, who wakes up every morning only to say "I hope no one shows me any kindness today!"
Kindness makes our life easier. Our Heavenly Father gives us the "Fruits of the Spirit" to remind us that we are to be kind in all that we do. In our modern day world, this can sometimes be very difficult to do. People make it hard to be kind! Why is this so? It's because of selfish attitudes. We want what we want......when we want it and no one is going to change that.
In Proverbs 3:3. Tells us that we are to let Love and Faithfulness never leave us. We are to bind them around our neck. We are to write them deep in our heart.
Love is kindness.
Did you know that sometimes we can rob others from being able to express their genuine actions of kindness? I witnessed this just the other day. I was busy doing my own shopping at our local grocery store...... As I approached one isle, I saw an elderly lady who was trying to pick up a case of water, but.....it was quite evident that she was struggling to get it placed into her buggy. A young lady extended her hand out to help this lady, and in doing so, she ripped a portion of the plastic wrap that keeps the bottles in place. What was meant to be an act of kindness, turned into an outburst by the elderly lady. She was unhappy that the plastic was torn, because now
..... ( in her words) she was not going to be able to get the water out of her car and into her house. She was extremely rude to the young lady and even went as far as to tell her that she needed to cut off those blank, blank fingernails. This was simply a young lady trying to help someone that she didn't even know...... Someone, who it was obvious, needed help.
Not only did the elderly lady rob this person of the joy of showing kindness, but she more than likely weakened this persons loving spirit, for the day.
I felt very bad for the young lady. It is very important that we take time to recognize kindness given by others and we need to remember to be gracious even if what they are trying to do, doesn't work out.
It s written in my heart that kindness is love!..
