What is kindness?  After doing a brief word study this is what I learned kindness is:

Intentional
Nourishment
Devotion
Noble
Encouragement
Service
Selfless

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved,
clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness,
humility, gentleness and patience.
Col 3:12 niv

I thought I was a kind person and to some extent I am
but I have a lot of work to do to be truly kind.

Blessings this day of grace,
patricia

  1. I think you are far more kind than you give yourself credit for! Kindness at any level is someone scarce at times these days, it is always refreshing to find people who are truly making an attempt to reach out to others in kindness motivated by love rather than by what could be gained from it. The world can always use more kindness, parents should emphasize it’s importance more!

    1. Thank you for the encouragement, Josie. When I read the words of what kindness is I see that I am lacking in some areas. Kindness does need to be taught. It is not something that always comes naturally. Self-centeredness is fast becoming the norm and we must be on guard to keep it from being the accepted practice. Thankfully there are those who are kind and bless us with their sweet hearts.
