Think for just a minute about all of the people that you have in your life — your spouse, your kids, your in-laws, your friends, strangers, anyone you come in contact with.
How are your relationships with these people?
If they were asked, would they say that you are a kind person?
In today’s society, it’s very easy to come across those who are not kind. Lots of snarky jabs and put downs are common forms of communication these days.
If you haven’t met many unkind people you must not get out much!
Have you been to the grocery store or to a department store on a busy day?
Next time while you’re looking around or waiting in line at the counter listen to all the conversations around you. More than likely you’ll come across some unkind people, speaking unkind words.
Christ wants us to be different. He doesn’t want Christians to be crawling out from behind “unkind” rocks.
“Be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you,” Ephesians 4:32.
“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto those who are of the household of faith,” Galatians 6:10.
Make this week count! Show kindness, even to mean people!
In His Shadow,
