Are we teaching our young one’s the manner to be kind? Disposing to create an atmosphere which is happy by assisting in the needs of others rather than causing distress in others? It’s not very difficult, we all want others to be kind towards us, yet, we are more demanding of this rather than showing kindness and that’s because we are not familiar with what tenderness or good nature or benevolence towards others is every waking moment of the day. One way to find out how my generation used to actually be is to watch some of those old black and white movies or television shows such as Father Knows Best, Andy Griffith, or Lassie nix the comedy and focus on the mannerism of how they cared for the needs of others. How everyone showed kindness to their neighbor, not just the person who lived just next door but in their community this was just the norm. Kindness flowed from the family within the home and it overflowed outwardly outside the home.
When we come to JESUS and we are baptized in the Holy Spirit it is impossible not to be kind, it is impossible not to show kindness. I’m here to share with you that if you have encountered anyone who has told you that they are a Christian and is not kind more than likely the Holy Spirit does not reside on the inside of them in full. In full means that we must be baptized in the Holy Spirit because He is the One who has the fruit of kindness. JESUS is GOD and when GOD is inside of us and we are inside of HIM we are able to do just as HE does and what HE does is pardon and HE is merciful. If we used to have a quick tempter that no longer exist, it’s not that we no longer get angry but when we get angry now it’s righteous anger against sin. We will grow daily towards looking for who we can show kindness towards today including yourself.
Look, the kindness of our FATHER will never leave us at any given time. So, if the FATHER is showering you daily with continual kindness, how dare us not to show kindness toward our brothers in CHRIST JESUS first, then self and then towards the unbeliever in JESUS. Our FATHER’s kindness is our fail safe but many don’t realize this, we may also take this for granted.
It is imperative that we live and operate in the spirit of goodwill and benevolence. Again, we are to have a temper or disposition which delights in contributing to the happiness which is temporarily based at the moment of others, which is exercised cheerfully in gratifying their temporary desires which do not go against ethical morals. We should supply their wants and always alleviating they’re distresses. Kindness ever accompanies love.
Nehemiah 9:17, Isaiah 54:10, Ps. 89:33, Galatians 5:22
