I recently had the opportunity to commit an act of kindness last week that cost me very little but it turned someone else from sorrow to joy. The look of gratitude on her face when she finally realized something was for once going to go right for them was priceless. Overall, we live in a world that can be very mean and cruel. The news bombards us with the stories of how creative men can be at hurting each other. The news screams outrage and blame. A friend reminded me that kindness can go a long way. I don’t know how far my little act of kindness went for the individual I helped, but by the huge smile on her face as she said to me “God bless you!” I’d like to believe it went a long way. Can I ask you a question? What if for a whole week you paused before every conversation, every encounter, every hard moment, every casual encounter, and simply asked ourselves, “What would Kindness DO right here, SAY right here, BE right here?”.  I think we might be stunned in what we would see and experience. I think kindness could do a whole lot more than we think. “Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
