Love Month: 14 days to a life of Love: Day 2

Ok Ladies! February is LOVE month!!! The bible says a lot about love. It says that God is love and that we are to love like God loves. In 1 Corinthians there is a verse that describes love. It gives 14 characteristics of love and we are going to tackle one of those every day! Hopefully it will draw each one of us closer into a life of love!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Day 2 Love is KIND:

A Kind person is defined as this: of a good or benevolent nature or disposition, as a person:a kind and loving person.

As followers of Christ we are encouraged to imitate Christ in our own lives. One obvious way we can do that is to imitate the kindness and compassion that Christ showed to everyone. I want to show my son how to be a kind person. A few years back there was a big trend of random acts of kindness we were all encouraged to do towards strangers. My challenge is not going to be random, it is very straight forward. I am going to challenge you to be kind to the ones it is sometimes the hardest to treat with kindness, YOUR FAMILY. I am not sure why it is so hard to be kind to the ones we love the most, but it is. So I challenge you to love with your kindness. It could be a kind word or TONE, a gesture or action, even a complete change in attitude all together. I know for myself it is not just going to be a day of kindness but a new attitude towards the ones I love most. Being kind and considerate is going to be a new way of life! Here are some scriptures about being kind.

And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you Ephesians 4:32

Kind words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Those who are kind benefit themselves, but the cruel bring ruin on themselves. Proverbs 11:17

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jeremiah 31:3
