kindness2

“Let there be no more resentment, no more anger or temper, no more violent self-assertiveness, no more slander and no more malicious remarks. Be kind to each other, be understanding.” (Ephesians 4: 31-32, JB Phillips New Testament)

The conclusion of this admonition is surely a solution to any of the unlovely qualities identified in the opening. All the angry and violent assertions and reactions would not find a voice or an opportunity for expression were we to begin with kindness and understanding toward one another.

Let’s take this to heart, and also be alert to any self-righteousness. For to refrain from anger and yet to judge others for being less gentle, sweet, and kind than we are, is to lose the power of love, of genuine caring and a higher view of our fellow man. Let’s be consciously kind not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it leads to healing, reconciliation, and peace.

And this peace begins within and is active toward our own individual healing as well. For as we replace words and actions that are spiteful or angry with those that are caring, tender, thoughtful, we are being who we were made to be—children of God who can settle safely and serenely into helpfulness and peacemaking, because they naturally know and feel the power and presence of Love.
