Kind. These four letters pack a punch.
So I decided to do a little research, looking up the definition I found Webster’s explaining the word as an adjective meaning helpful, gentle, considerate.
I’m going to be honest, this is the way I desire to be characterized. Why wouldn’t I? What do I have to lose by simply being kind?
Not fake or patronizing, but truly nice. To nice people, mean people, the busy or harried…no matter economic standing, gender or race. Even to the ones that don’t always return the same.
My home has always been a place that I want others to feel safe, loved and welcomed. I want Jesus’ love to be seen and felt. I want to treat the ones I love with the utmost kindness, to steer clear of harsh words, looks or actions. I feel like I sorta owe that to others, after all, Jesus commands us to be 😊
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
So today, let’s just be kind. Smile at a stranger, hold your tongue, call an old friend, do a good deed.
You’ll thank yourself.
