Success Strategies (Part 25)
'With a little wrath I hid My Face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,' Says the Lord, your Redeemer.
Isaiah 54:8 (NKJV)
Kindness travels easily. A smile cannot be bound. Kindness is connecting. A helping hand is found. Kindness loves the lonely. New friends are everywhere. Kindness is contagious--like fragrance in the air.
Kindness must be exercised. Good deeds bring joy and health. Kindness lives a big life. It always shares its wealth. Kindness walks on bridges that nothing else can cross. Kindness fills the holes that sometimes follow loss.
Kindness visits prisoners and beggars on the street. Kindness gets down and dirty. It even washes feet.
Kindness prefers no one and everyone, but it seeks those most in need. Kindness cooks and starts a search for hungry mouths to feed.
Kindness is a soothing sound that calms an angry man. Kindness is an attitude that says, 'I will, and I can.' Kindness speaks a thousand tongues. It's known in every nation. Kindness is a sign of peace to all of God's creation.
Kindness comes from Heaven to be shared at God's request. His Name is Jesus Christ. God gives nothing but His Best. So learn the rules of kindness from Him Who gave His all. That we might one day join Him--to rise and never fall.
Kindness in media is unusual and rare, but that's one reason God now shoots His stars into its air. So be good and be kind--in performance, word and deed. Therein actors, models and talent for Christ are destined to succeed.
