Kindness is something our world is desperate for. With growing fears and anxieties, everyone could just a kind word or gesture. As Christians, God calls us to be the light in the world - to love and be kind to all, even our enemies! This collection of Bible verses about kindness will allow God to speak to your heart about the importance of kindness, which in the end leads to good in the world.
Sometimes the difficulty we face in being kind stems from a need to forgive someone else. You can read these bible verses about forgiveness to remind you of the power of forgiveness not only for the other person but for yourself! The Scripture tells us in Ephesians 4:32 - “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
A Prayer for Kindness, Compassion, and Forgiveness
Father, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness describe Your character. How can I be more like You, Father? How can I be an outlet of Your kindness, compassion, and forgiveness to the people You have purposefully placed in my life? Show me, Father. Open my heart to remember the words of my Savior and feel the all-encompassing love of You, my heavenly Father. I am loved, chosen, purposed, and forgiven. Therefore, embolden me to pray, live, and love in a reflection of these great truths about who and Whose I am. Guide my prayers and my life. Let all I do, honor You. In Jesus Name, Amen.
