“What is desirable in a man is kindness.”
Proverbs 19:22a NASB
In today’s society much emphasis has been put on the outward appearance: how we look, how we dress, and how many achievements we have had. In a society where so many put their emphasis on “me first” and instant gratification, kindness takes the back seat and yet Proverbs 3:3-4 NASB tells us, “Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck. Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.”It has been said that kindness should be so much a part of our lives that that would be the first attribute a person notices about us. And Henry James shares, “Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
As you go through your day, watch for opportunities to be kind and then do it.
