TOPIC: THE KINDNESS OF LOVE
SCRIPTURE: Charity suffereth long, and is kind. 1 Corinthians 13:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is kindness and generosity in love.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that charity, which is love, is kind. This means, it is the nature of love to be kind. So, anyone who claims to love and is not kind is not a genuine lover.
Now, what do we mean when we say that love is kind?
Love is kind means:
1. There is generosity in love.
2. Love gives.
3. Love does not withhold good from those to whom it is due.
Proverbs 3:27-28 says,
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
God admonishes us to give generously. It is not proper to say, “I will give some other time”, when you can, give now.
You see, there are many people who can do for someone what they are joining their faith with that person for, in the prayer of agreement. What I mean is this: You can easily change the car tire for someone. You have enough money to assist in their accommodation and pay their children’s school fees, but you are praying with them for God to provide those things for them. If you can assist them, assist them.
Beloved, it is not out of order if you have money to buy a car for a brother who is very dedicated to God in church and is trekking to church all the time.
Therefore, make up your mind to be kind towards the brethren.
Remember this: There is kindness and generosity in love.
1. Make up your mind to be kind towards your neighbours.
2. Do not turn your back on the need of a brother when you have the capacity to meet the need.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You give me the heart of love. Help me to love and be kind towards everyone, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Bitterness and hatred are the opposites of love and forgiveness and these are the opposites of the nature of God and of what God stands for. Culled from “AM I BITTER?” by Dr (Mrs) Becky Paul-Enenche.
DAILY READING: Ezekiel 13-15
REFLECTION: When last did you touch someone’s life with the Love of God? When last did you do something for someone that they could not do for themselves?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to touch lives and impact destinies is released on you in Jesus’ Name.
