Kindness Is Contagious ~ October 14

Kindness Is Contagious

Spread it around!

But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

The first thing I think of when I see the word kindness in this verse, is the saying, “Kindness is contagious.” I have found that to be true over the years. It seems to me when we are kind to others, our kindness is usually reciprocated. Even better, when we are kind to someone, our hope should be they will in turn be kind to others.

Kindness is the love God places within us that emanates from us as we become more like Him, and it’s simply something we do if we have love in our heart.

When we are focused on God, He will fill us so full of love our acts of kindness will be automatic and spontaneous, and not contrived. The kindness we demonstrate toward others will be a fruit of our spirit, not a scheme from our mind.

Focus on God; be filled with His loving spirit, and kindness will be the fruit you produce.
