Did you ever notice? An act of kindness directed toward you is fresh and soft as a flower!
Take note next time someone shows kindness to you. Perhaps, it happens infrequently; perhaps not.
But when you receive a brush of kindness, you’ll know it: it feels like a breath of fresh air, a cool breeze on a sweltering day. That is the way Jesus’ sacrifice of kindness feels to us when we first become aware of the price He paid on Calvary.
Psalm 23: 1, 2 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters and restores my soul.
Greater love has no man shown than that he lay down his life for another… love, kindness, compassion!
We, too can show the kindness of Christ. When we have the Spirit of the Lord, our kindness shines through in all that we do. Christ has drawn us to Himself with loving kindness; His kindness remains in us. When we walk with the Lord, in His light and in His might, His kindness emanates from us, naturally: we can then impart that kindness to others. We, in our own nature, are not kind. By the grace of God, Who has lovingly bestowed His characteristics upon us, His children, we can be lights in a dark world. We can impart the Fruit of the Spirit, kindness, to our fellow man.
Jeremiah 31: 3 I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.
And at night His song shall be with me.
Psalm 93: 4
The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters,
Exodus 20: 2 For I am the Lord, your God.
