There is nothing in the world quite like kindness. Have you ever had someone go above and beyond to do something nice for you? I can remember a time in my life where a complete stranger made my day. I was flying to Florida with my infant and this wonderful woman helped me the entire flight. After we landed she helped me with my bags and even helped me carry my things all the way to the curb where my ride was waiting. I couldn’t believe how kind she was. She could have spent her entire flight reading a book or listening to music, but instead she chose to talk with me. I had been so nervous to fly alone with my baby and her kindness completely took my nerves away. God calls us to love one another. In Philippians 2 it says:
“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.”
My encouragement for you today is to be courageous and do something kind for someone. It could be filling someone’s car up with gas, bringing them a meal, or simply giving them a compliment. You will be surprised how much a little kindness can change someone’s life.
