John Maxwell said it this way, “No one cares how much you know until you show how much you care.”
Mark Twain said, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
The Psalmist gets to the heart of the matter, addressing God as the true source of kindness, “For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens, and your truth to the skies.” Psalms 57:10.
Kindness is mentioned over 295 times throughout the Bible, including being listed as a fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5. Many of the scriptures addressing kindness are in relation to mercy showered upon us by God himself. While we cannot produce the fruit of kindness according to human ability, it can flourish through the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers.
What exactly is kindness? Join Mentoring Moments in May as we discuss the fruit of kindness and what it looks like in our lives, homes, marriage, friendships and our relationship with the Lord.
