One simple act of undeserved kindness could transform a life.
During a very dark and confusing time in my life I learned the value of kindness. My life was chaos. The perfect picture of brokenness, and there it was, undeserved kindness. An acquaintance reached out to me, took me to lunch, listened to my heart, and let me know she understood. There was a sweet release in knowing my story wasn't finished. There were chapters to be written. Hope remained. And today as I walk in restoration and healing, I still remember her kindness.
Then there is the story of Zacchaeus. It was an act of undeserved kindness that changed him from a wealthy thief to a giver to the poor.
Kindness, especially the undeserved, softens the heart and lowers defenses. Practice it today. Smile big, speak kindly, and chose not condemn. You may just change a life while setting a part of your heart free in the process.
Have you experienced undeserved kindness? What did it do for your life?
Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:2 (NLT)
