Friday the 13th! Normally, a scary proposition. Hollywood distributes movies that glorify death and darkness on this day. Millions flock to see them. But…this week has been designated as WORLD KINDNESS WEEK and today, the 13th, is officially WORLD KINDNESS DAY.
Kindness is simply a having a friendly attitude toward others. It is manifested through Jesus’ lesson titled ‘The Golden Rule’:
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” – Matthew 7:12
“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” – Luke 6:31
Today, and everyday, let’s CHOOSE to carryout God’s mandate to love one another through the gift of kindness. As Christian men and women, based upon God’s Word, we represent the characteristics of God is the midst of this lost and dying world. A small demonstration of love could impact someone’s life immeasurably.
“For all the law if fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” – Galatians 5:14
Do your part today: Be kind. Bless you for doing so.
