This morning I nagged at my husband about the laundry. I really had nothing to complain about, he was doing the laundry, just not how I wanted it done.
Have you ever done this… demanded your own way…. Have you kept record of wrong? Have you become impatient for someone to live up to your standards?
When I act like this, I’m being selfish and self-centered. Pettiness drains our energy and strains our love. True kindness is unselfish. Read this description with is from my first book 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom.
Simple Acts of Kindness
So think about it. Is there anyone that you need to say, “I’m sorry” to? Making things right will clear the air. Make your home a place where people want to come back to. Kindness is a quality that warms the heart and hearth.
The fruit of kindness is a remarkable force of persuasion in our homes. Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. To be warmhearted, affectionate, and caring.
God’s kindness is not based on my behavior. The only prerequisite for being adopted by God is that we receive Jesus. His kindness and goodness lead us to repentance (See Romans 2:4). Romans 5:6 says, “When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners” (NLT). We do not earn His kindness, He simply gives it to us because He is good.
Kindness is Love in Action
I hope you enjoyed these tweets. I would love to hear your comments on kindness being love in action.
