God extends kindness to us even when we do not deserve it. In the same way, we are called to reflect God’s kindness to others, regardless of how they choose to respond.
Don’t wait for a crisis to extend loving-kindness to others. Take the time to ponder who is suffering from a recent heartbreak. Maybe they could use a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on. Who feels discouraged in your circle of friends? Maybe they need to hear an encouraging word. Who might feel alone? Perhaps you could pick up the phone and tell them that you care. Be faithful to do your part and watch God’s encouragement work in their lives.
Reflect & Pray:
*Would people who know you quickly identify you as a kind person?
*Who is someone who could use some extra kindness in their life?
*What act of kindness for this person can you do this week?
