"Many times they afflicted me from my youth, yet they have not prevailed against me" (Ps 129:2).
When I am kind, I am humbly positioned to learn from those around me and from God Himself. When I am kind to my husband he feels safe to be vulnerable. When I'm kind to my thirteen-year-old son, even as I inform him of the consequences of a poor choice, he remains open to me; respectful. When I am kind to myself, others around me feel at ease. When I am kind, I am remain sensitive to the teaching and counsel of His Holy Spirit.
The wise in heart will be called prudent, and sweetness of the lips increase learning. (Proverbs 16:21 NKJV)
I encourage you to speak kindly. The next time you feel frustrated with a family member, pause and think of the kindest way to communicate. You will learn something about you, him/her, and God.
When I die someday, I want this written on my gravestone: She was kind.
