Kindness as a Way of Life

Today I am writing about kindness, another fruit of the Spirit. Here are some thoughts that come to mind on the subject. It is the loving kindness of God that leads to repentance. Love is kind. Kindness is something I have ingrained in my children from the time they were toddlers at the hair pulling stage. “Be kind!” I said. I do believe the love of God in our hearts causes us to want to be kind. I know I have a hard time whenever I see someone being unkind, especially to children and animals. The Bible also tells us to be kind to all and not to show favoritism. It is easy to be kind to the select few to whom it is in your best interests to be kind, but a true Christian is kind to all and not just for show, but because he or she has kindness as a way of life.

How true it is to be kind, nice or accepting to those who treat us the same...but the Word of God asks us "well what good is that?" Boy, it sure is a challenge to show love to the unlovely sometimes
