Grateful 43 – Kind Actions From Others

Day 28 – Kind actions from others

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. ~ Aesop

Kindness aims to do good in a way that is gentle and mild, in a way that is sensitive to the needs of people. True kindness is surrounded by love and seeks to bless others by doing good to them in a gentle and mild way. ~ Laurence Veinott

We are to be kind. In the Greek kindness can be translated as “moral goodness or integrity.” The term refers to how a person treats others.

Because we are God’s chosen people, Colossians 3:12 tells us we are to clothe ourselves with kindness. Are you clothed in kindness? Are you fluent in kindness?

To be fluent in kindness means you are kind . . . to others . . . to yourself . . . and to our planet.

Kindness makes a difference. It impacts people. Kindness from others makes a difference in my life and it impacts me. I am grateful 4 3 kind actions from others.

ONE. Listening. Kind people ask how I am doing and then wait for my answer because they really want to know. Kind people listen to listen and don’t listen to speak. Kind people let me be a person and don’t judge my feelings.

TWO. Praying. Kind people ask how they may pray for me. Kind people follow through and pray. Kind people also point me to God, the One to whom we pray. Kind people pray that I experience God’s presence and follow His will..

THREE. Playing. Kind people ask me to join in their fun. Kind people invite me into their lives as a kid, student, friend, mentee, and co-disciple. Sometimes the play is active and silly . . . sometimes it is a creative pursuit . . . sometimes our play is relaxing . . . play takes many forms.­­­­­­

Because kind people do these types of things, I feel a sense of belonging. I feel loved. And then I feel compelled to be kind to others.

Your Turn . . .

I am writing a gratitude series titled Grateful 43. I will do this for 43 days. And I will write three things for which I am grateful 4 each topic. Do you see the play on the words 43 and FOR THREE?  Go here for the 43 Days of Gratitude JOURNAL Prompts
