Be Kind To Others
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophetsMatthew 7:12 (KJV)
Sometime back, before I bought my transport, I used to commute using public transport buses. These buses were almost always full; there was always one repeated pattern at each bus stop, which was that the people in the bus would complain and urge the driver not to add more passengers, while those outside would beg to get a chance since they had been waiting for hours and are tired.
The funny thing is that when the people begging to get in were inside the bus, they also started complaining and asking the driver not to stop for those waiting for transport outside!
What do we learn from this example? Humans are naturally selfish and inconsiderate of others. Our sinful nature of the flesh demands that we care for ourselves and ignore other people’s needs. Our verse today reminds us otherwise. For everything you wish someone to do to you, ensure that is what you do to others. This way, we will all be kind and loving to one another.
Write in the comment section below something that someone did that hurt you. After that, type, “God, Please Help Me Forgive and be Kind to this person.”
Father GOD, please help me be kind to others throughout this week. I don’t wish to focus only on my needs but also on those you have put in my life so they can benefit from your love. In Jesus name, I pray, AMEN.
