In A World Where You Can Be Anything, Be Kind

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Colossians 3:12

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. Proverbs 31:26

But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Luke 6:35


I have so many kind people in my life. Really, I do! I feel so blessed. And you know something? When you are around kind people, it makes you want to be like them! The Word gives us plenty of instruction on showing kindness, even to our enemies. Think about this for a minute, God loves and does good to those who are unthankful to Him and even those who are evil it says. When there is a drought and we pray for rain, He answers our prayer and we all get the benefits of it. We are not commanded to just be kind to those who are kind to us. We get to be kind to everyone! The good, the bad and the, well... Everyone!


PHILIPPIANS 2:1-18

1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

18 For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.


My hubby bought me those tulips in the above photos, for no reason at all! I guess he just felt like throwing a little confetti around! I don't get the camera out too often these days because I have so much pain and issues with my hands. I still have a passion for photography, if only my hands were more kind to me. Someday... sigh...


I hope you are having a lovely week! It's getting close to the weekend! And we may even get to see some snow flurries this weekend!!!


Until next time, go throw that confetti around... and be kind!
