Who is the kindest person you know? And what makes them so kind?
Over the course of the next few weeks I will be focusing on the theme, “Ways to Demonstrate His Heart, My Hands.” Each post will focus on a hands-on, practical idea for you to put into practice.
My present challenge to you is to perform a random act of kindness this week.
In Micah 6:8 the prophet said, “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
Some potential things you may try to do along these lines include the following:
- Pay for someone’s drive-through meal (the stranger in the car behind you. It is contagious).
- Be a courteous driver and let people merge in front of you.
- Take a bag of groceries to needy person or family.
- Do something thoughtful for your parents (wash their vehicles, wash their windows, mow their grass, do their dishes, take them out to lunch once-a-month and check up on them—you don’t have to be the center of attention, take time to spend just with them.)
- Do something thoughtful for your spouse (prepare favorite meal; clean the kitchen; fold the laundry; put a positive “Post-It” note on the bathroom mirror or bedside, or car rear-view mirror with something encouraging or complimentary).
Being kind doesn’t have to cost you very much monetarily. It just requires your having a heart for others and the desire to make a difference.
Why not try to become the kindest person you know? And I’ll do the same.
