Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.
(Proverbs 21:21 ESV)
The Fruit of the Spirit is KINDNESS.
Galatians 5:22-23 says, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
Kindness is how love behaves. Its purpose is to bless and help people. Kindness is not rude or critical. It is the opposite of abuse, hatred, harshness and cruelty.
True kindness is supernaturally placed in our hearts by the Holy Spirit to help us show love toward other people, even when they don’t deserve it and don’t love us in return. God is kind in this way towards us because He loved us even when our hearts were against Him before we knew Him. Praise God for showing us kindness! With His help, we can show kindness to everyone whose life we touch.
Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God’s favor. – D.L. Moody
