Today’s featured fruit: KINDNESS.
Stop reading this right now and go do something kind. Please.
Send someone a nice note. Bring soup to a sick friend. Volunteer in the community. Invite someone to lunch and pick up the tab. Do an elderly neighbor’s yard work. Clear out your closets and give stuff away. Clean up the mess you made in the kitchen last night without being asked. The possibilities are endless.
Done? OK, now you can continue.
Basically, kindness is love in action. Here are some verses to keep in mind so you’re more inclined to be kind:
“Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.” (Proverbs 12:25)
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.” (Proverbs 19:17)
“‘[W]ith everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,’ says the LORD your Redeemer.” (Isaiah 54:8)
“I will tell of the kindness of the LORD.” (Isaiah 63:7)
“Love is … kind.” (1 Corinthians 13:4)
“Be kind and compassionate to one another.” (Ephesians 4:32)
“[T]he Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone.” (2 Timothy 2:24)
