A Kind Return

It’s kind of like giving grace out isn’t it? Sometimes, in the hard places it’s hard to give it but giving out kindness and being kind is kind of like giving out grace and being gracious! It’s not always easy in our humanness to give of it freely! It may fall on deaf ears and cynical hearts but it’s still a sincere kindness and a beautiful grace coming from a sincere heart, your sincere heart and so do it anyways. Yeah, go on and do the “reaching out” thing to someone in need. To someone who hurts or possibly hurts others because they themselves hurt. Hurt returns hurt, much like kindness returns kindness. But then, deep in hurt, a gentle spirit of kindness comes in, in a gentle way, to soften and heal. You can be that kindness that comes in to soothe and smooth out the jagged edge.

Sometimes the very hardest thing to do but the very kindest thing is to just pray kindness over the one in most need. It will move God’s hand of blessing over them and return to you multiplied! So yeah, you there, right there in the center of hurt, tears and anger, do a kind thing! Share a prayer of love and find it returning in twofold in a blessing of grace and healing upon your own beautiful soul.

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

“If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.”

Proverbs 25:22

John 13: 34, 35.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

As Christ loved and does love, so we must love and accept others unconditionally. It’s been said that pastors and leadership live in a fishbowl, and it’s true as every action is pretty much known by the flock, but really, whether we like it or not, all Christians are transparent. We are watched, sized up and evaluated by other believers as well as non believers. If they don’t like what they see, we quickly get labeled as the hypocrite. What do others see when they view our lifestyle, and our attitude towards others? Evidence of love for others in our lives is far reaching and will affect the way we live our lives. It will affect our behavior, our grace giving, our values, our trust and our attitude. Love is the base of our salvation and is truly evidence of an authentic, true relationship with a God who IS Love.
