I am reading/listening to the One Year Bible Plan on the Bible app. This entry compliments what I mentioned last week about being one voice and unifying as Christians.
From Day 157:
“Steve Sjogren wrote a book called Conspiracy of Kindness. He started a church in Cincinnati, Ohio that grew rapidly to an average attendance of 7,500. Their motto is, ‘Small things done with great love are changing the world.’ They carry out random acts of kindness like paying for a stranger’s coffee or writing a ‘thank you’ note to a shop assistant.
Kindness is love in work clothes. Showing God’s love in practical ways, they have discovered the power of kindness to effect positive change, both in their lives and in the lives of people around them. Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change. When kindness is expressed, healthy relationships are created, community connections are nourished, and people are inspired to pass on kindness.”
“Kindness is LOVE in Work Clothes.”
This quote grabs my heart. You hear people talk about making a change and being different. “Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change.”
Kindness builds relationships. People listen to people who care about them, and what is going on in their world. God showed kindness to us. God sent Jesus who is Love for us.
Everyone desires to be heard and to matter. I am sure you do too. Ask God to show you each day how you can show kindness. It may be simple or something on a grander scale. You matter, and I am so thankful for you supporting Middle Georgia Christian Voice.
How can you and I show kindness this week?
God will give us the ability, the means,
and the strength to be a light for Him.
Be a light!
