Many are blessed by a single act of kindness.
When I observe someone being kind to another person, there are three simultaneous benefits. The person receiving the kindness feels cared for and valued. The person expressing the kindness feels the joy of giving, and of having a positive impact on another’s life. But there is a third beneficiary of this encounter—me! When I observe an act of kindness, love and hope spring up in me. As I watch the interaction between the giver and receiver, I, too, am blessed. With this in mind, I choose to uplift others. I demonstrate kindness, consideration, compassion, and patience—gifts from the heart—knowing the effects ripple out to bless unseen others.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness.—Galatians 5:22
