The effect of kindness


And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good work –Hebrews 10:24 

Word For Today

At a popular fast food joint in Accra, a customer in a queue paid for the order of the person behind him. Then lady whose order was paid for also decided to pay for the person behind her. In the end, a queue of 15 people paid for the order of the person behind them.The action of the first person’s stirred up a kind action in 15 people that day.

We mostly do not see the effects of our kindness to others, but rest assured, they really do have an impact.

1 John 4:19 shows us how this concept applies to us. The Scripture says that we love because He (God) first loved us. When we truly grasp what Jesus has done for us, we can’t help but be provoked to love as well. Jesus said that love is the hallmark of His Church. So let’s create an epidemic of love so contagious that others can’t help but be affected by it.


I thank You Lord for your loving and kindness.

I pray for your guidance in order to love like You in Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
