OK let me stop right here! WOW, never thought this would be hard. I don't doubt that I do random acts of kindness everyday, just never thought of them as acts of kindness..Now that I am "documenting" it most of the things that I would write seem kinda petty actually. Not that they are not good things, more of how can people not simply do these things everyday without cause? I cannot think of going a whole day and not complimenting my kids on something they did great, or holding a door for someone, or offering to help someone that I can plainly see needs it. I am finding it difficult to jot down things I don't feel are "deep" acts of kindness is my problem. Then I think of Luke 6:35
"But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil."
and Philippians 2: 1-4
"So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others"
And I realize that even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge impact on someones life. You never know what someone else is going through and the simplest of things can be the light they needed at that moment. Above all else we are called by GOD to treat others with kindness, compassion and love every day. So all the little acts of kindness I am thinking are not "good enough" to put down here, well, they are. Every act of kindness is important and demonstrates the love of God and you never know how that act of kindness is going to affect someone and how God is going to use t for His glory! So all that to say, after contemplating, I am perfectly OK with all my acts of kindness.
