I must admit...

 

I am becoming addicted to the “National Days” phenomenon.  It’s Channel 2 morning news’ fault. They started sharing what National Day it was every morning and, well, I just kind of took it from there.

I decided to give everyone a break and chose instead to post what National Week this week honors:

August 22-26
Be Kind to Humankind Week

I liked this option much better because all the options for this week's National Days had something to do with food. I’d prefer not to be addicted to food.

As I meditated on the concept of being kind to humankind, God prompted my spirit to think on these things:

Keep in mind that everyone has a different perspective based on what they’ve witnessed. Please read 2 Corinthians 1:3-7.

I is in the exact center of “u n I t y.” I should serve as a connector. I must be willing to yield to some while leading others. Please read Ephesians 4:1-16.

Nice and kind are very different. Nice is often the false face of surface pleasantries. Kindness comes from our soul and offers our heart and actions for the betterment of others. Please read Ephesians 4:31-32.

Do unto others is not only the Bible’s Golden Rule; doing good to others makes us a better person. Better people create a better society.  Better societies heal the world. And to think – the solution begins with individual actions! Please read Matthew 7:1-12.

Kindness is an art that must be developed. As we submit to Christ, He molds us more into His image. I am forced to ask, “How much do I resemble Him?”
