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?
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?
If you want to be holy, be kind.
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.
He who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
Kindness makes a person attractive. If you would win the world, melt it, do not hammer it.
He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.
The first thing a kindness deserves is acceptance, the second, transmission.
What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?
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.
