Words to Ponder

 


Kindness is highly underrated in our modern society. For too long we as a culture have stressed getting ahead by any means, thinking of number one, and success equals power or money. Kindness, on the other hand, thinks of others, is sensitive to needs and doesn't worry about success.

I need to show more kindness in my life. And it's listed as one of the fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23..."But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, self-control."

Hi Lorrie,

This reminds me of a song by Jewel. I don't know the name of the song but some of the words are "only kindness matters in the end".
