Try A Little Kindness

Weekly Devotional

Several years ago, Glen Campbell sang a very popular song that said "try a little kindness, then you'll overlook the blindness of a narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets."

If ever our world needed kindness, it is today. It is so sad to see what is going on in our country today. Hatred walks our streets. It is seen in emails and other sources of communication and has even spilled over in our political arenas today.

We need to ask ourselves the question, "Is this how God wants us to act?"

The world needs the loving kindness of God to be personified in Christians today. In our day-to-day dealings we need kindness.

Every day in the news we hear of people who are unkind to their fellowman. But every day there are those who go out of their way to show love and kindness to someone who is not in position to help themselves.

The apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 4:32--"And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you."

If your life has not yet been marked by kindness, try it-- I promise you, you'll like it!
