Kindness

Thought of the Day

Scripture Reading

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

Colossians 3:12

Thought of the Day

I have this nifty app on my ipod that lifts up positive quotes each day.  This week there were two on kindness that I want to share with you.  The first is by my old standby, Mother Teresa.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

The American humorist, Mark Twain once wrote this:

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

It seems that the world is in dire need of kindness.  It can begin with you and it can begin with me.  If each of us treated everyone we came in contact with each day with kindness, imagine how things will be.  Imagine what a difference it might make in someone’s life.  There is someone out there that needs a kind word.  There is someone out there who needs you.  Make it happen.

Prayer

Lord, I am one of your chosen people.  Help me to clothe myself with your kindness.  Amen.
