“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him. Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37
Kindness literally means love in action. It goes far beyond words to how we treat those around us, how we serve, even how we spend our money. The Good Samaritan gave of his time and his resources to show kindness to a total stranger. God asks us to be like that, to be more like Jesus, to be kind people in an unkind world.
Put love in action today. Let your kindness be evident in everything you do, and let love be shown through your actions.
Jesus I want to be kind. Show me opportunities to show kindness to those around me today. Create in me a heart that knows how to put love in action, and help me show your kindness to the world around me today. Amen.
