Did you know that the Bible mentions “kindness” in over two-hundred instances and “kind” over four-hundred times? Kindness is an act of charity, or the lifting up (figuratively) of others. Although it might not always be easy to show kindness—especially when we disagree with someone—God’s word offers wisdom for threading this godly attribute into our lives. Let’s take a look at what the Bible teaches us about kindness and how it can be used in everyday life.

The Bible shows us that God is kind, and He expects us to follow His example by being kind to others. Here are some tips for living out kindness every day:

Listen First – Before responding or reacting to a situation, try to listen without judgment first. This allows you to better understand where the other person is coming from and can help foster understanding between both parties.

Respect Differences – We all have different views, opinions, and backgrounds—and that’s okay! Respect those differences and remember that it’s okay to disagree without being disagreeable; a friendly debate can often lead to greater understanding and appreciation for each other’s beliefs.

Speak Words of Encouragement – Look for opportunities throughout your day to encourage those around you with words of affirmation and support. Complimenting someone on their outfit or work ethic can go a long way towards making them feel appreciated!

Offer Help When Needed – We all need help now and then, so try offering assistance when needed if you are able to do so. Even small gestures like holding open a door or carrying something heavy can show someone that they matter enough for you to take the time out of your day to help them out.

Pray Together – Prayer brings people together in ways nothing else can; use this time as an opportunity for both yourself and others around you to rely on God for strength during difficult times or simply just enjoy His presence together during good times!

Show Gratitude – It is easy overlook the importance of expressing gratitude but showing appreciation can make all the difference for somebody who may not feel valued otherwise. Make sure that you thank those who help you throughout your day, no matter how big or small their contribution was!

In conclusion, living out kindness every day is an essential part of following God’s Word while also living life as an example of grace and love through our actions towards others around us! Whether we are disagreeing with someone or helping them carry something heavy, let us strive each day to show kindness even when it doesn’t come naturally – because ultimately, this is what God wants from us as His followers!
