Daily Thought For Jnauary 16, 2017

Kindness
   
 
How can I show kindness to others? 
 
GOD'S RESPONSE 
The way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better. 
Colossians 1: 1 0 
 
Do for others what you would like them to do for you. 
Matthew 7:12 
 
I myself have gained much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because your kindness has so often refreshed the hearts of God's people. Philemon 1:7
 
 Kindness is not a single act but a lifestyle. It is the habit of being helpful, encouraging, sympathetic, and giving-what you do for others that says, "I'm thinking of you." Even in confrontation you can be kind. You practice kindness in all you do and say, always treating others as you would want to be treated. When you do that, you bring great refreshment to everyone you meet and you honor and please the Lord. Your kindness today may pass on to many generations and leave a lasting impression on more people than you realize. 
 
GOD'S PROMISE 
Your own soul is nourished when you are kind. PROVERBS 11:17
