GOODNEWS DAILY DEVOTIONAL DECEMBER 11, 2021 (ABUNDANT KINDNESS)
TOPIC: ABUNDANT KINDNESS
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:32
And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Forgiveness is part of your DNA. Normally when someone is being rude or disrespectful, it is because they have an ought or grudge against that person. Christians must be kind and forgive others because Christ forgave us.
This is not the easiest thing to do because forgiving someone seems like they are getting off the hook. Not so! When you align your character with the Word, you become more Christ-like and eventually forgiveness will be automatic.
Being tender-hearted is a strength, not a weakness. People will try to test you but since you are Christ-like, you will always pass your test. The Bible tells us that, “Only by pride cometh contention; but with the well advised is wisdom” (Proverbs 13:10). Wisdom will keep you on the ‘kindness, tender-hearted and forgiveness’ road. Keep walking on that road and you will disarm all contentious situations.
When you feel like you need to give someone a piece of your mind, remember what Christ has done for you. Being kind and forgiving people adds value to you, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Visualize yourself treating everyone with kindness and forgiveness. You will be amazed at how fast you grow spiritually. Practice kindness and forgiveness today, you will have a brighter future because you did.
Christ has forgiven me, and I will forgive others. I will be kind to everyone. I will never hold a grudge or have unforgiveness. I am free in Christ Jesus!
