Never let loyalty and kindness leave you (Proverbs 3:3)!
This 7 -word command lets us know how vital it is to show kindness in the world with every opportunity we get.
The verse goes on with instructions to tie them [loyalty and kindness] around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.
Another sign that God wants us to take this attribute seriously.
There are no respective persons or prerequisites to showing kindness to others. We should do good to everyone whenever we have the opportunity to do so (Galatians 6:10). We are called to love our neighbors as ourselves (Galatians 5:14), even the ones we haven’t met yet, the strangers among us. What better opportunity to practice this than a national holiday designed for just that?!
In honor of National Random Acts of Kindness Day, Feb 17th, here’s a list of ways you can be a neighbor to a stranger today.
Take this list and apply one by one or make a day of it and complete them all in one sitting. Whatever works best for you, I invite you to consider the power that lies in consistently being kind to one another.
