. . .Kindness

Kindness is the next thing that the Spirit gives to Christians. When children are smal,l we start teaching them to be kind. “Share your toys.” “Let other people be first.” “Always say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’”
When I think about kindness, I think about Abraham. Our Bible Reading tells us that Abraham and Lot decided to separate their flocks of animals. Abraham was kind to Lot. Abraham let Lot choose which land he wanted. Lot chose the best land with lots of water. But the place Lot chose was full of sinful people. Lot faced many problems because of his choice.
Abraham stayed in the hills. But God blessed Abraham for his kindness. God promised Abraham much land and many descendents (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren).
God will bless us for our kindness, too. When we are kind to other people, we please God and we are happy. Start today and be kind to the people you see at work, at home and at school.
