The time for kindness is when others need it, not when it’s convenient for you.

In a world of selfishness and violence, kindness is in short supply. That’s why any act of kindness, no matter now small, is newsworthy.

Jesus established the standard for kindness when He said, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27). This principle can give you a quick and easy test to determine whether you are showing kindness to others. In any situation, you can just ask yourself, “How would I like to be treated?” The answer will be obvious to you, and then you can treat others in that same way.

Make every effort this day to show to others the kindness that God wants (and expects) of you.

“Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits,” Jesus asked. The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”
Luke 10:36-37
