Kindness. What is it? Kindness is characterized by the quality or state of being kind. Kindness is a major element of, do on to others as done on to you. Most of God’s gifts come to us as Grace and often it is not necessary for us to ask for these gifts. He has given us the gift of being able to overcome the difficulties that face us. We have much to be thankful for because of God’s kindness to us even from before we were born. Kindness is needed in life because we need to be grateful for what we were given and help others who aren’t stricken with the same abilities, kindness results in a more worth while life, and everyone needs kindness to live.
People haven’t always been grateful to God for his gifts. I know I was very grateful when I learned what I was born with, for example, I was born with apnea, a disease stricken in infants that causes their breathing to stop while they are sleeping. That most be the reason at the current point in my life that I enjoy sleeping so well. But God’s love and grace pulled me through and kept me safe through my early childhood.
Certain dependability is necessary to practice kindness. Kindness is our way of imitating life’s true meaning. Kindness is always something special. For example. On your way to work you notice an elderly man struggling to cross a busy street. He is surrounded by so many cars, he doesn’t know what to do. He reaches the pedestrian crossing and pushes the button but the cars and trucks keep coming. Being a kind person you take the man by the arm and help him across the avenue. That’s kindness! Your kindness may be the difference between a "good" and a "bad" morning. Look for these opportunities!
Some people do not like to be assisted. They feel able-bodied enough to tackle street crossings even though they are elderly.
