Hope in Kindness

This month we’re focusing on two things: kindness and thankfulness.  This week, since it’s the week before World Kindness Day (November13th), we’re focusing on kindness.

Coming from a spiritual perspective there’s a lot we could say about kindness, and I’ll share some of those verses next week.  But this week let’s talk about what kindness is.

Kindness doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, smart or average, big or little, old or young.

Kindness steps in when it is needed.

Kindness doesn’t care how much time you have or don’t have.

Kindness makes us better people.

Kindness doesn’t care if you’re Catholic or Protestant, Buddhist or Atheist.

Kindness doesn’t quit early or arrive late.

Kindness is seeing the need and not the cause.

My encouragement to you is that you would try to be kind in whatever way you know best.  If you know kindness of words, share them.  If you know kindness of holding doors, do it. If you know kindness of baking for seniors, do it.  If you know kindness of writing, write.  Whatever kindness you know, share it.
