Ephesians 4:32 NIV (New International Version) Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Kindness is one of the fruits of the spirit; it is a way to spread God’s everlasting love. Not only that, but showing kindness is simply a nice thing to do–it is a way to make someone’s day brighter. And today is the perfect day to talk about kindness. Why? Because it is Random Act of Kindness Day! Although I’ve already posted several posts with this subject on my blog, today is especially special.
It isn’t always the big actions that mean the most–sometimes something as small as a hug, a letter, or a compliment can make the biggest difference; bigger then we might think or imagine. Kindness can come in many forms. Not to mention that it’s good for our health (it’s good for our immune system, good for our heart, and it can reduce anxiety and depression.) It feels great to be kind!
Here is a list of some of my past posts pertaining to the subject of kindness. Enjoy!

Kindness is selfless, understanding, and loving. Not only should we practice being kind to those who we call our allies (family, friends, etc.) but we should even be kind to our enemies. The Bible says that if we forgive others for their wrongdoings our Heavenly Father will forgive us. If we don’t forgive others, then we aren’t forgiven by God. (Matthew 6:14-15) And believe it or not, forgiveness is a form of kindness.
Besides, God shows us kindness every second of every day. Why shouldn’t we follow in His footsteps and do the same for others as God is always doing for us?
Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! ✨
