Love is Kind

Our LORD is kind to us
“And David sent messengers unto the men of Jabeshgilead, and said unto them, Blessed be ye of the Lord, that ye have shewed this kindness unto your lord, even unto Saul, and have buried him. And now the Lord shew kindness and truth unto you: and I also will requite you this kindness, because ye have done this thing.” 2 Samuel 2:5-6

“Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.” Proverbs 31:21

“O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.” Proverbs 117:1-2

“There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.  The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.” Proverbs 19:21-22

The wise person does not hesitate to speak kindness to others
“Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.” Proverbs 31:25-26

Scripture contains many references about God’s kindness towards us; our very existence depends upon it! Each one of us has sinned against a holy God; we truly deserve judgment, not His kindness! Nothing we have done in the past, nor will do in the future, can earn us God’s kindness; it is His free gift to us! We are utterly undeserving of God’s kindess; and yet, through His Son, Jesus Christ, we are forgiven, and able to receive eternal life!! Therefore, how small a thing is it for us to show love and kindess to others, even when we believe they don’t deserve it?

Blessings,

Love is Patient

Christmas is a special time to celebrate the perfect love, God has for us: Jesus Christ came to bring the Gospel message; providing a way for us to be saved. This was truly a wonderful message! More than 2000 years later, the same message of repentance, and forgiveness remains unchanged. No matter what you have done in the past; regardless of the sins you have committed; you can be forgiven! God’s patience is very wide, desiring to save everyone who truly repents of their sins. Scripture tells us plainly we are to become more like Jesus in our daily lives.

May the grace of our Lord fill you with joy, peace, and love.

Learn the be slow to anger
“He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding:
but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.” – Proverbs 14:29

“A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.” – Proverbs 15:18

Do not repay with evil
“See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:15

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.” – James 1:19-20

God has infinite patience and love for us; should we not then learn to love our neighbour, and those who have wronged us? Be patient. Be Kind. Be understanding. Show compassion. Show love. Leave the rest to the God.

Merry Christmas, and God bless!
