One of the Fruits of the Spirit…Kindness

Galatians 5:22 NIV

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…

Jesus tells us if someone hurts you, forgive them, 7 times 70!   Be kind no matter what is happening it will carry you a long way, it will ensure peace and prove you belong to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Kindness in the Holy Spirit

2 Corinthians 6:6

In purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love

We pray each day for the Holy Spirit to direct our path. We learn to depend on the guidance that we receive. Only then can we feel the abundance of kindness to others.

Love eachother

Romans 12:10

Love eachother with brotherly affection and take delight in honoring eachother.

Are we doing everything we can in loving and respecting one another? When someone curses, doe this make you feel dishonored? When someone ignores you or your request, does this feel like Kindness? Think about that person’s  feelings. Because when you were saying it …you were not-God wants us to honor all that cross your path, no matter what, don’t step out of the Boundary!!

Kindness in the face of defeat

Sometimes when we talk to someone about God, it’s like talking to the wall. But if we continue to stay focused on HIM he will somehow transform that person into something new. The Holy Spirit will guide them as they continue to fight it, instead of surrendering to it.

Continue to pray for that person even though you may feel like you have been defeated, the day will come when they say you were right!

Opening the door to kindness

 1 Kings 

King Solomon  opened his kingdom doors to many, chapter 10 speaks about Queen of Sheba and many Great men from  many lands that came to interview him and listen to his God given wisdom . He was a generous King giving and receiving gifts from many.

King Solomon opened a door to kindness. .

Open your mind today to God.  He will give you the kindness and wisdom in your life just for the asking!

Walking in kindness


Mathew 5:39

Jesus speaks on “an eye for an eye”

But I tell you , do not resist an evil person, if someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Come on now, some people are such a challenge sometimes aren’t they!

But Jesus tells us there will be trials with everything!!! So instead of getting mad or running from them try to live as though you were meant to see this person today and that person you are angry or annoyed with may just be teaching you something, even about yourself!  So, be kind, even if they are not. Show you belong to the Lord and follow in his ways, they are always loving and truthful.

As you read through the posts you will see a lot written for changing a heart, watching your step and especially for forgiveness.

Because….God is Simply Kind!

Welcome to the first posting of Gods Simple Kindness

Psalm 35:1-2

I will praise the Lord no matter what happens. I will constantly speak of his glories and grace. I will boast of all his kindness to me. Let all who are discouraged take heart.

Have you ever started something and felt like it wasn’t going to work out? Then you share the idea with someone and they encourage you? That’s  God’s kindness.

Share your kind thoughts!
