Spiritual Kindness


Early Friday morning, I received a text from a friend at work. He wanted to know if I was coming in as it has been a very challenging week. I texted that I was and he replied with, “I’m bringing you breakfast.”

Unexpected and awesome!

Sometimes I think God wants us to accomplish big things. I’m sure He does.

I’m also sure that a little thing can be very big and very meaningful.

My prayer for us today is to remember that even what appear to be small acts of kindness can touch another person in a way we may not know. A meal. A phone call. An email. A visit. A prayer.

As a gentle witness, we can pray to God’s Holy Spirit to guide us to that person today.

– “Kindness is the language the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

Mark Twain

  1. So true, Rick. Thoughtfulness and acts of kindness are the little gems that make the world a better place. God sees (and blesses both the giver and the recipient). How cool is that.

    • So glad you are here with us! Often times, I get hung up what is mine and lose track of how giving can be a blessing for both. God’s gift of grace is the ultimate present we can share!

    Yes! It’s amazing what a small act of kindness can do. I once remember a fellow writer who visited me in the hospital after my ankle fusion and brought me a beautiful framed photo he had taken of a sunset. He gave me another small photo after a writer’s meeting later that year. It was of a beautiful purple flower. He also gave me two of his devotionals! What a nice guy! 🙂

    Amazing! I, too, know this same incredibly thoughtful guy. He has boosted my dour mood with chocolate more times than I can count. And my writing space is surrounded by his beautiful photography, including an adorable bird, a daisy the exact color of my Too Blessed to be Stressed motif, and a nature scene. Just thinking of him always brings a smile to my face!

    • Your kindness and willingness to help aspiring writers defines thoughtfulness! I remember the first time I called you and how kind you were. Thank you for sharing your journey and being here with us!

  4. I have read a few of your blogs and have enjoyed what I have read so far. I look forward to reading more in the days to come. God bless!

    • Thank you so much! I believe you will find a community of people who enjoy discovering and sharing God’s grace with one another. Comments always seem to complete posts in wonderful ways and give us more to consider. I appreciate you taking the time time to be here with us.
