Love Is Kind

Love is patient, love is kind.  1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV

love is kindWe wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for God’s kindness and love.

Kindness is kind of important. Our attitude as parents toward other people and situations shows whether we think kindness is essential. Our children will notice it.

Siblings often fight over something and then tend to repay evil with evil instead of showing kindness. Parents and grandparents must teach them to be kind to one another. Kindness starts in our homes, then moves to our hearts. Once there, we can show it to others.

Wise King Solomon said to bind mercy, truth, and kindness around our necks and write them on our hearts. Kindness should be inside us and then out on display. When we do this, our children will learn what it means to be kind. My mom always said, “Kindness costs nothing.”

Ask God to help you model kindness to your children and grandchildren so that they can learn how to be kind.
