Eph4:32. “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
This one verse by Paul the Apostle is another powerful written expression of practical truth clearly stated!
- Kindness is a language that the blind can see.
- Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear.
- Kindness is a language that the poor get rich.
- Kindness is a language that those hurting can heal.
- Kindness is a language that the lonely can feel.
- Kindness is a language that is real.
- Kindness is a language best spoken in word and in deed.
- Kindness is a language that gives thought for another before giving thought for itself.
- Kindness is a language of genuine love.
- Kindness is a language that loves you no matter your circumstances.
So give a little kindness and love someone, with kindness… You will heal the world.
You heard the saying.
“kill your enemy with kindness.” Why? That’s because kindness can kill hate and selfishness.
Jesus put it this way:
Matthew 5:44-48 KJV
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven, is perfect.”
- “Doing good” or “keeping a good spirit.”
Are rare character building blocks to help you in today’s society where your greatest enemies are not your neighbour’s as they were in days gone by. It’s in your family then “close circles”…
The challenge for me has been to die to self. It’s an experience to endevour daily.
There are many days in many moments; I want to let go of control and go back to hurting back those who are hurting my family and I. But; prayer holds me back. Kindness takes over, and Jesus Grace heals my Brokeness n weakness in my time of need. God’s Word, the Bible, when memorised and incorporated into your Spirit in your daily battles, will quicken our bodies and encourage our Soul and fine-tunes our Spirit to act the right way. (It does not always work out this way, but should.)
Memorizing scriptures like this helps:
The Bible says:
Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV
“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.  For we have not a high priest who cannot be touched with our infirmities’ feeling; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-18 KJV
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.  For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.  So then death worketh in us, but life in you.  We having the same Spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;  Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.  For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Father God, help us in our weakness, help us in our unbelief, help us in our negatives, and help our mindset change. Rebuke our enemies so that we don’t need to engage in their negative. Help us to be kind to others in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen! 🙏 ❤️KP
