Kindness? Alot of us have real trouble comprehending it. Small things like saying "excuse me.." when bumping someone or helping someone carry groceries(etc.)portray this special quality. This is not a gift that God bestows upon certain people. Kindness is something gained through time by patience and extreme care. Like many things it takes desire, and if you are a child of God then this should be one of your most desired things.
A kind man befits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself.
- Proverbs 11:17 -
An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.
- Proverbs 12:25 -
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.
- Ephesians 4:32 -
Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:15 -
Consider therefore the kindness and sterness of God: sterness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in His kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.
- Romans 11:22 -
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
- 2 Peter 1:5-7 -
