The Lost Art of Kindness

Being out and about town, it’s very easy to run into people who are rude. It seems they flourish everywhere you go. When I see someone being kind to another person, it makes me smile all over, inside and out. I think every cell in my body smiles. You know why? It’s because you see so little kindness nowadays and when you actually do witness it, it’s like seeing a brilliant spotlight shining down on a stage surrounded by darkness.

In my time of devotions today, I read a passage of Scripture that just jumped off the page at me. Do you realize that when you show kindness to another person, you are being a minister of God. It’s a beautiful way of showing God’s love to another—letting your light shine. Read it for yourself in 2 Corinthians 6:4-10. As a matter of fact, this passage of Scripture shows over 30 ways you can live your life as a minister of God. Much depends on how you respond to life, but that’s another topic that could fill a book so I won’t go there now.

Take your light out from under that bushel and let it shower down spotlights of kindness everywhere you go today!
