Love is kind, a very becoming character trait in a person. When seen exhibited in a person it tends to spread. One kind act often leads to another.

It is easy to display kindness towards kind people but how do you respond to an unkind person? Did you know that Jesus said we get no reward for being kind to kind people. He modeled kindness to an unkind world towards Him.

“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

We’ve all benefited from God’s kindness, His blessings are shed abroad, even upon the unkind.

“…For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 7:45b)

Let kindness begin in your closest relationships. I have found this to be the hardest test to pass but once you master being kind in your own household it will easily spread abroad. Kindness brings out the greatness in us when done through the kindness extended to us from God.

“…Your kindness made me great.” (Psalm 18:35b)

Love is Kind.

“For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?” (Matthew 5:46)
