Random Acts of Kindness
Kids are taught from early on to be kind to others: share, play nice, don’t hit. Decades later we are still learning the same lesson. Why isit so hard to be kind? Especially when studies show that kind people are happier, healthy, and live a more fulfilled life. Like all the otherfruits, kindness is an attribute of God that we are to express to others. Mother Theresa encouraged, “Be the living expression of God’skindness.” Kindness begins with God that then flows through us out into the world.
Reflection Questions: In what ways have you experienced the kindness of God in your life? Is there any difference between kindness asa fruit of the Spirit and just “being nice?” Who will you show “the kindness of the Lord” to this week?
