"Showing Kindness- Fruit of the Spirit"
Verse: Galatians 5:22-23
Kindness is doing something and not expecting anything in return. In Colossians 3:12 we are told that as God’s chosen people we are to clothe ourselves with kindness among other virtues. The Bible is full of stories of kindness. I’m reminded of the four friends that brought their paralyzed friend to see Jesus so he could be healed as one of many great examples for us to follow. God wants us to show kindness to others. But we are to show kindness to honor God, not ourselves. There are many ways we can show kindness. Here are a few examples you might try- 1)when at a restaurant drive thru-pay for the person’s meal behind you, 2)open the door for someone at a department store, 3)offer to baby sit for a single mom or take a widow out to lunch. A simple act of kindness can have a big impact.
