"An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up." - Proverbs 12:25
Since many of us a participating in the "Kindness Challenge" I thought it would be nice to talk a little on the subject this month. I hope you are finding some great ways to spread kindness to those around you. I know that you will feel such a blessing in your own life as you bless others.
I just wanted to share this verse to stress that an act of kindness can be something as little as a cheerful word to someone who is down.
So many people are barely able to walk around...so burdened down by the load they carry. If you look around you will find no shortage of saddened, depressed, and worried people. Sometimes they are so deep in their own troubles that they see no light. We need to be that light. We need to point them to the One that will carry their load.
This is such a simple verse, but it is so true. You will never know how much just a kind word will cheer someone up.
So, my challenge would be for us to keep our eyes open, keep our hearts sensitive to the needs of others, and keep our lips always ready to spread cheer!
How are you doing with the "Kindness Challenge"?
