The Kindness of God

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might display the surpassing riches of His grace, demonstrated by His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God…” Ephesians 2:6-8, Berean Study Bible

An aspect of God’s character and nature that is often overlooked is His kindness. Modern dictionaries define kindness as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines it as an act of good will, or any act of benevolence which promotes the happiness or welfare of others. Kindess is also one of the fruit of the Spirit. Why? Because it is easy to be kind to someone who is kind in return. The Spirit of God is helping us come face to face with undeserved kindness, the same that He has shown us and compelling us to show the same.

With His help, we will do good to those who have tried to ruin us. With His help, we will meet the need of someone who fought against us. We will bless those who spoke against us. We will experience true freedom Jesus purchased and will show real kindness. God is helping us overcome evil with good, my sister, and leave the outcome to Him. This is how we win. My sister, we are a bold and beautiful display of the infinite, limitless riches of God’s grace and kindness through Jesus Christ!

Prayer: Father, thank you for the kindness you’ve shown me. I did nothing to earn it, yet you continue to demonstrate your kindness in my life by loving me, forgiving me, and helping me. I humble myself right now and ask you to help me show that same kindness to those around me whether deserved or not. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Romans 12:21; Galations 5:22; Philippians 2:15)
