There are so many different ways to show ACTS of KINDNESS that hardly take a lot of effort. Acts of kindness doesn't have to cost a ton of money. Acts of kindness can merely be the most simple thing in life but yet make the most impact.
Sometimes an act of kindness can simply be a hug, a pat on the back, or words of affirmation. Acts of kindness can be taking just a few minutes of your time to call a person just to see how they are doing or sending them a card to simply say, "Thinking about you today". A lot of times the greatest act of kindness is sharing ourselves with someone else.
In Matthew 10:42 Jesus speaks of sharing a cup of water. He isn’t speaking of just sharing a drink with someone. He’s talking about sharing ourselves; the practicality of living a Christian life; a life of relationships, both with God and with people. He’s talking about the humble act of giving a piece of ourselves to others.
We never know how God can use just one simple act of kindness to speak volumes to another person's heart. It's the simple acts of kindness that has the most lasting effect!
Random acts of kindness are a means by which we make a deliberate attempt to brighten another person's day by doing something thoughtful, nice, and caring. Kindness is a way of showing others that they count.
What act of kindness have you shown lately to another?
If you are too busy to show kindness to others....then you are TOO BUSY!
Our earthly acts of kindness my friend can be an eternal blessing for others!
Speaking of kindness I was a recipient of another person's kindness this week. Matter of fact...this act of random act of kindness came "just when I needed it".
I had a package waiting on me when I got home.
As soon as I saw the return address I knew it was from my "across the miles" sister in the Lord and blogging friend Debbie. We've been friends for a long time now. On one of my mountain trips Deb and I met for coffee and a long visit and needless to say our spirit's "just clicked". Spirit knows Spirit! We pray for one another, lift each other up when needed and well, we just love each other with a sisterly love.
The suspense of "what's inside this tissue paper" didn't linger either I can tell you!
As soon as I saw her card I knew she had made me something!!!
BEAUTIFUL! It matched my kitchen perfectly.
Don't you just love my dish towel?
Thank you Debbie for your act of kindness! And this act of kindness was a pure labor of love!
Make a delebrate effort today to show kindness to someone! It's easy.
Just be KIND!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
