16 thoughts on “When to be kind”

  1. The words of Paul in the Holy Bible:
    Eph 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

  2. Yes 24/7 we have to be kind. Even in the middle of the night when you are fast asleep and a friends telephone call disturbs your sound sleep, never hesitate to answer. Perhaps he/she needs your immediate help and it may be too late if you call back the next day.
    So let’s gear up to be kind because nothing blesses you more and nothing can bring you more happiness except when you are being kind all the time.

  3. good morning Evan and readers and writers of the blog. I tell you my personal experience: There are few things in daily life that satisfy me as much as kindness. It is something wonderful. You can have a difficult day but if you stay kind and are kind to you, I assure you change the day from clouds to light
    It is for me the kindness a Marvel. Look only if you meet a stranger on the street who is distressed and treat him with love, I assure you that in the act your heart is full and one too. Blessings to all and excellent weekend. Gustavo Beutel. Argentina.

  4. Nergish I always love your comments, so full of light and Love. Thank you. Likewise all comments are substances that nourish and enrich, which is also kindness.

  5. Thank you all for your excellent and loving comments.

    I will ad something different to this very good post, thank you Evan.

    This morning like some other times I got a call from somebody telling me to change my electricity company, or my phone provider etc. They will sell their own products, which could be cheaper, as they mostly say, etc.

    To those persons I try to tell them as friendly as I can at that momet, no thank you I am not interested because I have everything I need and then I put the phone on.
    I mean, sometimes you have to be firm to the people but yet friendly.

    Love the Epheser Vers from Grace – thanks. 🙂

  6. What about the virtuous woman? Proverbs 31:6 “in her tongue is the law of kindness>”
    Not confined to women only, because “Jesus knew the law of kindness.” (Hymn 178)
    Yes, kindness is a law.
    One can describe our leader as kind. And she said in Miscellany “Kindness in its largest,
    profoundest sense is goodness.”

  7. Had to chuckle at this thought-starter! Being Myself is so much easier, peaceful and satisfying than trying to be something I’m not.

  8. Thanks, Evan, and all! When I was a child and had to walk about a mile to school on a busy main street in Hollywood, CA, I read something that has really impacted my life. It was something about how a smile can change a person’s day, and that we can share smiles that come from our heart everyday with others. From that time on I felt the desire to smile at people—especially older people who looked a little downhearted. They would immediately respond. It was kindness that was being expressed, not in words, but in smiles from the heart. It has become a natural part of my being. (And I was extremely shy on top of that, but it didn’t interfere with my smiles which showed me it wasn’t from self.)

  9. I do workshops for people that are between jobs. One of the things that they learn about especially when they are in their dark cave is to do something for someone else. To be kind to another person, to have a kind word, to acknowledge someone who is having a not so good day…..and why? Because it lifts not only the other person but lifts their own spirits and what a wonderful place to be. What blesses one blesses all.

  10. Thank you so very much, Evan. I love the Scripture’s account of Naomi and Ruth. Both women emitted kindness for one another with God’s love for all. Truly a beautiful painting on Life’s canvas.
