Ah! May this sound actionable rhetorical to you reading this. Who is good enough to deserve good enough things in life?. Who is more an angel to deserve God’s all in all love and kindness? . Everyone needs and wishes to be treated with greatness by everyone else in and around their lifes. But who is that? ;so deserving of all that love and compassion?
Kindness is a Great virtue that keeps humanity well conserved together. Infact it’s the root of true humanity. It’s a desire out of a great outlined character. It can’t be forced into or out of any human being . One has to be willing to portray a welcoming, accommodating and caring nature. Myself believe that kindness goes hand in hand with lovable character . But though the two are related [Kindness and Love] there are instances where kindness exists without love . For intance: you can be kind to a stranger [someone you barely know about] like a begger in the streets. You showing your kindness to them by maybe giving them some cash or food staffs doesn’t mean you love them. You’re doing it mostly out of kindness.
Kindness does not only involve giving financial or material help, but also involve an emotional support. Let’s say! Just helping someone through a situation or circumstance that is challenging them, whether you do it by physical, material, emotions or any other way that makes them feel an ease in that which they are going through is enough an act to own the word Kindness.
Kindness is not to be for sale. Just as love; no amount quotable can buy kindness. It’s a priceless gift. Given out of God’s Grace and Mercies. If you show kindness to a family member, a loved one, a friend ,a colleague, a stranger; please do not expect it to be shown back to you . Expect not some kind of reciprocation. Like some kind of transaction; No! That will only lead to your one and another disappointment. Avoid showing kindness ‘Cos of what you’re getting in return; rather do it out of self-will and out of character and do it too for God. He says a service to God is also to Him. Remember! If you’re doing it to gain later then that’s not kindness rather some sought of selfishness.
Who deserves kindness?
No one much deserving than another to get a hearty touch. If you’re gonna be kind. Just do it with all you got without considering the recipient(s). Just as love; so is kindness. God has given you that wonderful, amazing heart for a reason. If you don’t use it on humanity then where will you?. Imagine God [ The everlasting Father] loves and takes care of you for free. He asks nothing from you in return; does He? Yes! One would think to say. But what? “For me to Worship and Praise Him.” Huh! But that’s why we were created by Him. It’s our duty and responsibility to Worship and Praise God . But not some kind of transaction with God. Not an Exchange like [do me, I do you] not [love and Care for me and I will worship and Praise you God] . It’s for our own good to Worship and Praise God and Him alone. It’s the only way to show that we Believe in Him, we Obey, we Trust and have Faith in Him .To show that we acknowledge and Believe that He exists above all. Living according to His will, commands and intentioned purpose for His creation of our existence.
Writing this has made me think so much about my life and how I live with those around me [known and unknown]. Deeper, wider and corner by corner I searched myself to make sure myself realise what a person I am; I have been. Especially in regards to today’s topic [kindness] and even [Love] . I, in my self-search noticed some sort of hypocrisy. Am a hypocrite to some extent. Ask me how? .I have at times; many times every chance I got shown kindness and love neither out of sincerity, self-will nor self-rule but out of my expectations of the recipient(s) and the turn out of the situation and circumstances involved. Tell me! How easy is it for a man to live according to his life principles?. Huh? I guess you’d agree with me that it’s not all that simple . Well! Maybe easy said than done. So I hope my words above may guide me too as they do you. Finally Brethren! Remember! Show Love and kindness out of character and God not ‘Cos of you . Good Luck!
