Thursday, September 1, 2016 kind.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Being kind does not need to be complicated, nor does it necessarily require heroics! Sometimes it just takes that tiny bit of extra effort--a smile, even if you do not feel like giving it, a friendly 'Hello,' even if it feels awkward for you to talk to complete strangers. Offer the person siting next to you, (on the bus or waiting in a doctor's office, or at a check-out line), a stick of your gum or a peppermint, (before you pop one into your own mouth). Let's all make an extra effort to be kind today!

God Bless You!
