Kindling Kindness!

I am going to continue with the theme of "Fruitful Living" as the goal of the Christian life. We have previously discovered that when the fruit of the Spirit is growing in a Christian's life, it signals that God is significantly at work in a person's heart. Today, we will examine the fruit of Kindness, as seen through the world of animals & nature. World famous Christian author & minister Billy Graham stated, "Often the only thing a child can remember about an adult in later years, when he or she is grown, is whether or not that person was kind."

Kindness appears in everyday routine activities!
Ewe don't need to be "Sly" about sharing Ewer Kindness!
Well known Christian author & pastor Max Lucado stated, " I 
choose kindness... I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone. Kind to the rich, for they are afraid. And kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me." 
Elephants display kindness by looking out for each other's young in groups.

Kindness is sharing Ewer shelter with a loved one!
Mother Teresa, peacemaker, pioneer, & legend of Calcutta, stated, " Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."
Kindness is knowing when someone needs a hug!
Kindness always thinks of the other person's needs before my own!
Christian author & pastor Neil Strait wrote, " Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a look, a touch. It is anything that lifts another person."
Kindness is sharing the Gospel with kindness, knowing it may not received!
Kindness is sometimes providing someone a listening ear!
Christian preacher Alexander MacLaren wrote, "Kindness does
not require us to be blind to facts or to live in fancies, but it does require us to cherish a habit of goodwill, ready to show pity if sorrow appears, and slow to turn away even if hostility appears."

The kindest thing Ewe can do for someone sometimes is to give them a HUG!
Kindness is sharing Ewer favorite treat with a "hungry" Friend!
Sheep thrive in an atmosphere of Kindness, provided for them by their Shepherd. The Shepherd will gently lead & treat his flock with Kindness & respect!

Kindness kindles the fires of Love! I Love EWE!

As Ewe travel throughout Ewer day, travel with an excess of Kindness to share with the people Ewe encounter . As Ewe exhibit the fruit of Kindness, others will surely witness the light of Jesus shining even brighter through EWE!

"Be ye kind, one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another; even as God in Christ has forgave you." Eph. 4:32


  1. Lemurs were funny! We actually saw a whole family of racoons by our house... a mom,dad,and eight babies!

  2. Hi Kerry! Thanks SO much for Commenting! I'm happy that the Lemurs "entertained" EWE! Raccoons are somewhat "Shady" around the eyes, so guard Ewer trash cans, if Ewe know what I mean! God Bless Ewe & looking forward to seeing "EWE" -all in TN!
