His kind of kind!

I love this shirt I bought from Five Below! Do I have any Five Below friends out there? It’s a great place to go broke!

They have a great selection of shirts for just 5 dollars. I’m a big believer in kindness. That’s why this shirt caught my eye. Kindness goes along way and you can never go wrong with being kind. Like the shirt says “Kindness comes back around!” This has been true in my life but I don’t believe it’s the reason we should have for being kind. Jesus is the reason we have for showing kindness.

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:31-32

Demonstrating kindness is tough. It’s hard to be kind when others aren’t so kind to you. It’s hard to show empathy to someone who is struggling in a sin that does not make sense to you. It’s difficult to be forgiving when someone has hurt you on a deep level. However, Ephesians 4:31-32 teaches us to be kind in every situation not because every situation or person deserves it but because Jesus has shown that same empathy, forgiveness and patience with you. Jesus has been so kind to me too.

He had compassion for me when I was walking through an eating disorder.

He had patience with me when I continued to cut myself.

He forgave me when I tried to find my worth in anything other then Him.

He responded with calmness when I let my anger take over.

I’m not perfect. I have flaws. I struggle just like anyone else and He has always been faithful through his forgiveness, empathy, patience and love. I want to be His style of kind.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
