Kindness - Part 3



Unkind, inconsiderate, rude, discourteous, unkind, coarse, unpleasant...
Oops, what's this? An insult or a bombardment of words?
No friends, this is the opposite of kindness, a person who does not know how to be kind  ends up having the characteristics mentioned above, even without realizing it.

Let us see what the word of God says about kindness:
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Many times the person cannot be kind because she thinks that others do not deserve it, or they want to give them tit for tat.
Friends, we do not live according to the flesh, let’s please God, without seeing if people are or are not deserving of our kindness.
This should be part of our lives, regardless of the attitudes of others, because otherwise we will become like them.
We must not be like the religious, who know the Bible, but do not practice it, or they practice it when it suits them.
So, who wants to acquire this quality?

Sad but true, and with this message I believe one needs to reflect and find the true "kindness" God want from us.

Thank you

This seems so obvious but necessary a lot of people expect kindness but are not willing to give it to others. I will practise this despite whether or not people deserve my kindness.

Indeed is true sometimes we are not kind because we thing that the person doesn't deserve it, but we should just think of pleasing God.

Thank you

This is a true revelation. Kindness does not have anything to do with whether or not a person is deserving or not. all we need to do is to please God by our kindness.
