Be Kind to One Another

As God has forgiven us, let us forgive others. No manner of sin should rule in our heart. Put away bitterness and draw nearer to God, for His love for us is good and His troubles are light. Worship him always, giving thanks for His love.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

(Ephesians 4:31-32)

Be rid of bitterness, for it is as a weed that wastes the heart and strangles life. Hate rises from its roots and threatens all who keep company with us. Purge its ground with God’s love and allow His kindness to flourish within you.

Be gentle toward one another. Never allow a slight to turn us from God’s truth. Through Jesus, we have salvation. Is there anything more we ought to desire than to be with God always? Show compassion toward all, for we do not know their plight.

Give to those in need. Bless the homeless. Show mercy to those who struggle inwardly. Visit the infirm. Bestow heavenly treasures to the elect, guiding them toward God. See that no one leads you astray. Be kind to one another.

  1. Ridding ourselves of clinging to bitterness isn’t easy, especially if that bitterness seems just, but it will lift such a weight. As for being kind to others, I think that’s the most important thing we can do. It should come naturally – just imagine how brighter a place the world would be with just a touch more kindness and compassion? 💙

    Have a great rest of your day, Jack!
