The world needs more kindness and with God we have an endless supply. As His children, we are able to tap into that and have a constant source of filling up that spills out over into everyone we meet. You never know who that kindness may touch.
Last weekend a huge storm hit while I was at Walmart and the power went out. I was already in line and in front of me was a young lady with two huge buggy’s full and a child in a wheelchair. She said, “Will the register still work?” The cashier said they had a back up generator good for 30 minutes but the belt didn’t work. She was trying to deal with the child and get bags in the buggy so I began moving her things through for her. “Oh, she exclaimed!” and moved toward me and I said, “No I have this, you tend to her.” She finished and a worker helped her get the two buggy’s outside. I finished and got outside and there was the same young lady. The child was in the wheelchair, rain pelting her, and her moaning in discomfort. I told the worker to go in and help someone else and told the lady to get the child loaded into the van while I loaded the groceries. We then worked together to get the rest in the van. After it was all done and I put her cart up and was headed to my car, she comes back out in the rain and says, “Can I just give you a hug?”
Oh how that made my heart smile. I started a new position today and there was so much kindness from every direction I turned. I came back to my room and read Isaiah 54:10, “For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.” The Lord’s kindness shall not depart from us. How much more pleasant this world would be if we allowed that kindness to spill out over onto everyone we meet, yes even into the not so nice ones. Perhaps it is those who need it most. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
