“ Kindness is really just the overflow of an awareness that God has been incredibly kind to me through Christ. ”
“ Kindness is a giving love. It’s goodwill toward others that serves and is gracious. ”
“ When we are kind—including to those who are ungrateful and undeserving—we stand out! It’s counter-cultural! ”
“ Kindness flows out of humility, others-centeredness, and most importantly—a life that is centered in Christ. ”
Picture a leaky faucet. Imagine the rhythmic drip, drip, drip of water dribbling from the spigot. Each individual droplet may seem insignificant, but plug the drain and soon enough those drips will turn into a puddle . . . that puddle will turn into a pool . . . and that pool will turn into a flood. Kindness works the same way.
In a world filled with heartache and hardship, “be kind” can feel trite. Still, the Lord knew what He was doing when He told us to “be kind to one another” (Eph. 4:32). And have we ever needed kindness more? We’re focusing on kindness for the whole month of July and want to invite you to join us for the 30-Day Kindness Challenge.
To keep thinking about kindness, listen to Shaunti Feldhahn, author of the book, The Kindness Challenge: Thirty Days to Improve Any Relationship on the Revive Our Hearts podcast June 28 through July 1.
Don’t miss a day of the Kindness Challenge. We’ll post updates to this playlist all month long.
