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 helps us come face to face with the undeserved kindness of God and it compels us to show the same.

With His help, you will do good to those who have tried to ruin you. With His help, you will meet the need of someone who fought against you. You will experience true freedom through your acts of kindness. God is helping you overcome evil with good, and leave the outcome to Him. This is how you win. My sister, you are a bold and beautiful display of the infinite, limitless riches of God’s grace and kindness that was showered upon you in Jesus Christ!

Prayer: Father, I’m so thankful you for your constant love and kindness you’ve shown toward 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 to your will to show that same kindness to every single person. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

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