Kindness

In a sermon at church on Sunday, the preacher encouraged us all to think of a way that we can make the world better and to go out and do it.  He encouraged us to use the gifts we are given at our baptism:  Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control, and generosity.  This is as good a starting point as any for fixing some of the problems that ail our nation.  As I reflected on the troubles, it seems so much depends upon little every day actions and patterns of behavior on the part many, many people.  I can start with myself.

I was reading Romans 12 and Romans 13.  There’s so much good advice in these words for our present time:

  • Outdo one another in showing honor.
  • If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
  • The one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
  • Love does no wrong to a neighbor.
