One day I took my dog to the vet. On the way, my car suddenly stopped. I called a tow truck. The driver of the truck allowed me and my dog to ride in the truck with him. Friends came to the garage and took us home. The truck driver and my friends were very kind to me.

Boaz was a man who showed kindness to other people. He saw a woman gathering grain from his field. This woman was Ruth. Boaz protected Ruth and provided for her and her mother-in-law, Naomi. Later, Boaz and Ruth were married. Boaz and Ruth had a son named Obed. Many years later, Jesus was born from this family line.

It is very important that we be kind to other people. There are many ways we can show kindness — share a meal with a needy person, visit someone who is in prison or help provide food and shelter to people who are homeless. Ask God to show you people today who need some kindness.
