Showing Kindness


My heart broke for my boss.  She’d worked hard to plan a very special gathering.  Then only half of those that promised to come actually showed up.

She’d worked for days planning, shopping and preparing everything for the gathering.  I

could see the pain and disappointment on her face.

Too often people RSVP for something and then think it’s okay to not show without letting anyone know.  I can understand when there is an emergency, but we live in a thankless society.

If we want others to show kindness to us, then we need to show kindness to others.


A little bit of kindness can go a long ways


Showing kindness includes:

  • Doing what you promised
  • Being honest about your intentions
  • Going the extra mile
  • Lending a helping hand
  • Provide a listening ear
  • Having a compassionate heart

2 Samuel 2:6 says, “May the LORD now show you kindness and faithfulness, and I too will show you the same favor because you have done this.”

Do you show kindness to others?
