The heart benevolent and kind most resembles God. Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can read. Be ye kind, one to another...~Ephesians 4:32~
To cultivate kindness is a valuable part of the business of life. In this world, you must be a bit too kind in order to be kind enough. Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meaness. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. To be able to practice five things everywhere under heaven constitutes perfect virtue...gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness. You never miss an opportunity to do good for someone else. As the body of Christ we are to be supportive and a blessing to people through our selfless actions. Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
Do all the good you can.
By all the means you can.
In all the ways you can.
At all the times you can.
To all the people you can.
As long as ever you can.
Always be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle. Kindness gives birth to kindness.
For thy loving kindness is before mine eyes: And I have walked in thy truth.
Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; it was not given for you alone, pass it on; let it travel down the years, let it wipe another's tears, till in heaven the deed appears, pass it on.
The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth, and to have it found out by accident.
But ye, beloved, building up yourself on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourself in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
~Jude 1: 20-12~
How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
Therefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another. Even as also you do.
~1 Thessalonians 5:11~
If a man/woman be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he/she is a citzen of heaven, and that the heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them. There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness. A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles. That best portion of a good man's life...his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love. Kindness is wisdom. Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, help to make earth happy like the heaven above. Kindness causes us to learn, and to forget, many things. A person who sows seeds of kindness enjoys a perpetual harvest. If you stop to be kind, you must swerve often from your path of selfishness. The truest greatness lies in beng kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
~1 Corinthians 13:2~
It is well with my soul,
