“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
Continuing on with the Fruit of the Spirit Instagram Challenge, after joy comes KINDNESS! This week puts us at the halfway point for the Fruit of the Spirit, and I can’t believe we’re already there. But now is the perfect time to join in because everyone can always use a little extra kindness in their lives! As cliche as it is, the saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all,” is so true and relevant. No matter the circumstance, choosing kindness will always be the right choice. As I’ve grown up, I’ve always been told not to “be ugly” to others, and I struggle just like everyone else, but I try to always speak a kind word to anyone I come into contact with.
This week’s verses are all centered around the theme of kindness, and I encourage you to keep them close to your heart. Life can change SO quickly for everyone, and we never know the circumstances that others are facing. Choosing to be kind and positive, even if the person in front of you doesn’t reciprocate it, could be that one small gesture that shows them Jesus that day.
