Fruit of the Spirit - KindnessBy Jerry Wierwille on 02/09/2020
Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
Kindness - “the quality of being generous, helpful, and considerate toward other people”
Kindness is not a typical attribute that our world values. Our world looks at the external, not the internal.
Proverbs 31:30, “Charm is deceptive and beauty is but a vapor, but a woman who fears Yahweh-she will be praised.”
Isaiah 40:30, "Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted.”
It is not what you have on the outside that matters; what matters is what is on the inside-in your heart. That is what makes you who you are.
Proverbs 4:23, “More than anything else you protect, guard your heart, because from it flow the issues of life.”
Romans 2:4, “Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God is intended to lead you to repentance?”
Illustration: 2 Samuel 9:1-13
Showing kindness means showing grace, being generous, thinking of the good of the other, helping, and being considerate.
The lie from the Enemy: kindness is viewed as weakness.
Nice guys finish last??? Not in the kingdom! Kindness will always win the day.
