The Love Dare~Day 2~Kindness

Today’s dare is all about kindness.  In the book it’s says that kindness is love in action. It was broken down into four different sections:

1.  Gentleness:  Speak the truth in love.  (Do you say what needs to be said in a loving tone or in such a way as to get your point across no matter the cost?)

2.  Helpfulness:  Being kind means you meet the needs of the moment.  (Are you so busy trying to take care of your own business that you don’t even look at what your hubby’s needs are?)

3.  Willingness:  It’s about being agreeable, cooperative, flexible, accommodating and willing to make compromises.  (I’m all of these at work.  Why do I have a difficult time being all of these at home?)

4.  Initiative:  Kindness thinks ahead, takes the first step, greets first, smiles first, serves first, and forgives first. (This is pretty convicting for me.  How many times do I think my hubby needs to get his act together first before I do anything?)

 

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.”  Proverbs 3:3-4
