Quotes About Kindness To Inspire Compassion And Benevolence
Quotes About Kindness:
”Instead, be kind to each other, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
When asked to define kindness, a Bible verse often comes to mind, “we love, because He first loved us” (1 John 3:19). Indeed, our capacity to love not only stems from God’s loving-kindness toward us, but relies on it for continual sustenance.
Oftentimes, we try so hard to be kind to others that it becomes either a tiring chore or a hypocritical act. Although the act in itself is done in goodwill, without a proper motive and a true heart of compassion, it still falls short of what God has intended for us.
Yet, it is at these times when we feel tired and exhausted that we must remember that we are not alone. God never intended for us to work alone. In fact, it has always been His will for us to first focus on Him and not on the works that we do.
Hence, it is crucial that we understand – even if it’s just a little bit – how much God really loves us. When we have a glimpse of His everlasting kindness and mercy, when we realise how His heart is forever turned towards us, it simply changes us from the inside, and fills us with a love that flows naturally from within, and allows us to extend the same compassion to those around us.
Therefore, let us continually seek Him with all our hearts, allowing Him to fill us with His Spirit. Let His goodness and kindness fill our lives with salvation, healing and love, so much so that it overflows into the lives of those around us.
It is then that we will realise that acts of kindness doesn’t have to be hard at all. When we are filled with this agape love of God, kindness can exist in even the tiniest of acts.
A simple phone call, a few encouraging words, a loving hug. Every one of these small gestures, combined with a heart of compassion, has the power to change lives and make the world a better place.
With that in mind, the quotes about kindness selected below are meant to help you understand God’s loving-kindness for you, as well as how we can easily incorporate acts of compassion and benevolence into our daily lives.
Remember, we love, because He first loved us.
