Try A Little Kindness

“And be ye kind one to another” (Ephesians 4:32).
Seven little words that carry with them such a powerful impact on our lives. Kindness is defined as being disposed to do good, as an act of good will but like the word “love,” it is difficult to grasp or capture its full range of meaning. Kindness is seen in a good nature, a gentle, tender, loving spirit. We do recognize it when we see it but still find that mere words never seem to do it justice.


Jesus’ Faithfulness and Our Fruit Of Faithfulness

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,…; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).
Jesus revealed God to us while He walked among mankind (John 1:14 and Hebrews 1:3a). So as we look at the fruit of the Spirit, we need to see it through Jesus’ manifestation of the fruit.


Darkness Vs Light

Text: “For ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (Eph. 5:8).

I recently watched a Sci Fi flick about a young man who was entering the medical profession and doing his internship on some distant planet which had been colonized by earth people. The time is around 3,000 A.D., and the planet looks much like our own earth. But the most unusual thing, and it was very “realistically” portrayed, was that this planet had both darkness and light. “But”, you say, “so do we!” No, you don’t understand. They had light and darkness at the same time. “But so do we. When it is dark on one side of the earth it is light on the other side.” Okay, let me put it another way. One side was totally dark – all the time. The other side was total light – all the time. And there was a conflict between those who lived in the dark and those who lived in the light.
