Be Kind

When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.

R.J. Palacio~ Wonder

It’s been years since reading this book but the impact is still there.

Here are some other powerful quotes on kindness;

Have you ever noticed how much
of Christ’s life was spent in doing kind things?

~Henry Drummond

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

~Micah 6:8

If you want to be holy, be kind.

~Frederick Buechner

Kindness has converted more sinners than zeal, eloquence, or learning.

~Frederick W. Faber

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

~Mother Teresa

He who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty.

~Job 6:14

Kindness makes a person attractive. If you would win the world, melt it, do not hammer it.

~Alexander MacLaren

He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.

~Augustine

The first thing a kindness deserves is acceptance, the second, transmission.

~George Macdonald

What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?

~Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Ephesians 4:32 King James Version (KJV)

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

God bless and keep you today.

Remember that you never know fully what a person is going through, or what brokenness they feel, so be kind.

  1. This is exactly what I needed to read right now, Vivian. ‘He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?’ I struggle with the paradox of finding myself trying to convince others they need to be kind when they have been mean, through which I just become mean myself, rather than demonstrating kindness and having the patience to let it do it’s own work.
    Thanks for the timely reminder. Bless you. L
