A weekly blog, by author Leslie K. Howard, filled with spiritual, uplifting thoughts to help you get through your week

Kindness

All this week in Sister Circle Prayer Network during devotion we have been examining The Fruit of  The Spirit.  Today our focus is on kindness. Kindness is one of the fruits that we all like to receive but may not necessarily want to reproduce. Why? Because it takes a little bit of work. Kindness takes effort and let’s face it, we are just too busy to take out time to smile at someone, or leave a posted note on their desk that says “You did a good job.” How about sending a card just to say “I’m thinking about you today.” What about the widow next door? How about sharing a cup of tea or taking her grocery shopping? You have to go anyway. But no. We’re just too busy for all that. Hmmm… I wonder. I wonder, what if The Word said, “I’m Just Too Busy”?

If anybody had the right to say I’m too busy it would have been Him. But the Word became flesh and dwelled among human kind. He healed, fed, and forgave sins. Gave vision, stopped blood, and resurrected the dead all because he was moved by compassion which caused Him to do great acts of kindness. And let’s not forget the greatest act; He died on that cross so we can have everlasting life! So do we have an excuse??? Sisters let’s pray to be moved by the Spirit to see the needs of others. Let’s be spurred by compassion to show kindness to those in need.

Sister Circle Prayer Network gathers daily at 6:30 am  eastern, for morning prayer and devotion.  If you’d like to join look us up on Facebook groups or email me your name along with the state (or country) you live in and I’ll send you a call in number with a personal pin.
