“K” is for Kindness

When you think about kindness, what comes to mind?

The word “kindness” seems to have a gentle ring to it, doesn’t it?  Does the idea of being kind, or having kindness shown to you make you feel good inside?  The world can be a gloomy place sometimes.  Kindness is something that sheds a ray of sunshine into the gloom.  Jesus was kind.  It is one of his character traits that draw so many to Him and the story of His life written in the pages of the Bible.  Jesus cared about others.  Jesus saw through their pain.  Jesus touched their lives for the better.  This is the example that we should follow when it comes to our spouse.  We should be kind to our spouse.  We care about them.  We can try to see through their pain.  We can definitely touch their lives for the better.  Whether kindness is something that comes naturally for you, or is something that you have to work on diligently, it is necessary to building a strong, successful marriage.

We need to build our marriages up, because unkindness can tear them down in the blink of an eye.

Here are a few ways that you can be kind:

  • Speak positively
  • Speak without harshness
  • Speak encouraging words
  • Listen attentively
  • Say “I love you.”
  • Say “Thank you.”
  • Do something nice
  • Touch gently
  • Do something unexpected
  • Do something needed
  • Spend quality time together
  • Kiss, hug and hold hands
  • Laugh together
  • Share God with each other
