“Showing Kindness-Fruit of the Spirit”

“Showing Kindness-Fruit of the Spirit”




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.
