Kindness

James 2:16

James 2:16

If one of you says to them, "Go in peace; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?

After Thought

The seed of kindness is sown by faith into the souls of those in need. Someone saw this wet, cold, and abandoned dog and sowed the seed of kindness in faith that blossomed into a forever friend.

Psalm 71:9

Psalm 71:9

Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

After Thought

His faithful friend bore with him the burdens of youth and now he faithfully bears the burdens of her old age. She still gets to go where he goes. A true testament of love and friendship that mirrors God's promise that "He will never leave us nor forsake us." (Deuteronomy 31:6)

2 Kings 10:16

2 Kings 10:16

He said, "Come with me and see my zeal for the LORD." So he made him ride in his chariot.

Deuteronomy 10:19

So show your love for the alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.

After Thought

Jesus taught the Golden Rule that reminds us to treat others in the same way we would want to be treated (Matt. 7:12). That theme was depicted in a very popular movie that is humorously depicted in today's picture. Do you remember it?

Luke 11:34

Luke 11:34

The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness.

After Thought

What do these eyes seem to be saying to you?

Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
