“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” – Ephesians 4:32
I usually just read right over that little command in this verse. “Be kind.” It seems trivial. Every command in scripture should be taken seriously and every command is in scripture because our flesh doesn’t do it. Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit in Galatians. It’s easy to be kind to people who show you kindness but this verse doesn’t make a distinction. We are to be kind to everyone.
“Be” kind is the command, not do kind things. Kindness should be a mark of our character.
Who have I NOT been kind toward? How can I show them kindness today?
