LOVE IS KIND
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV
Kind is a state of having or showing a friendly, generous, considerate nature. Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. The Bible teaches us that love is kind, in other words love has an ability of being friendly, generous and considerate to everyone.
We are taught in early stages of our lives to be kind to all people but never trust strangers. As we grow older we learn that there are some people who tend to take advantage of us when they see we are kind to them.
If you have the heart of giving, there are some people who will keep on asking you money and things even if they don't need them. In life you need to learn to say no to some people; but never stop being kind to all people. A person, who has the love of Christ in him; will give generously without expecting anything in return.
This morning, I want to encourage you to be kind to everyone. Maybe people have been taking advantage of you. It reaches a point you feel like you should stop being kind to them and be a mean person. Jesus fed 5000 men without counting women and children; but still at the end of the day they shouted crucify him before Palate.
You may help people today, who will later badmouth you; but still help them anyone way. If you are struggling to help some people just ask the Lord for a direction. There are some people who are real in need; but they don't appreciate the help they get from people. God may want you to continue helping them and leave Him to deal with them in His time. We shall continue with this Series of Love according to 1 Corinthians 13 tomorrow if God wishes, God bless you!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to be kind to everybody who come in my life in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
