Bible Blessings® Quality Christian Gifts wonders if it sometimes seems like we have lost our sense of civility. Quality Christian gifts come in various forms and sometimes all it takes is showing the gifts of kindness to bring back quality to our lives and relationships.
Grow a garden of kindness
All too often these days, and thanks in large part to social media, people can connect with millions of other people and make disparaging remarks with little to no thought. While it is easy to make mean and hateful remarks, what purpose does it serve?
Instead of spreading mean and unkind thoughts, why not use your Christian gifts to grow a quality garden of genuine kindness? Here are some suggestions:
Treat others as you would like to be treated: this goes for both online and offline interactions with others.
Forgive one another: why carry around a grudge? The only purpose of staying angry at someone for a past argument or negative action towards you is to continue to take up negative energy.
Love one another: you’ll be amazed at how much lighter you will feel, and happier, too, when you choose to love other human beings instead of disliking them. And you’ll be surprised at how the love you share will be paid forward to others.
Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry: it is the wise person who listens before speaking. Truly hear what the other person is saying before assuming to know the person’s intentions.
Go forth, then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, with hearts filled with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience, bearing with one another and, if you have a complaint against another, forgive that person; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Most importantly, always seek to give your love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
