These days, people are constantly keeping busy. We always have something to do and somewhere to go. But, it will brighten your day- and somebody else’s- if you take time to provide simple kindnesses. And when I say simple, that is exactly what I mean. Some of the very basic things you could do include…
(♦) Offering a smile and/or greeting whether one is given to you or not.
(♦) Saying please and thank you (even if the performed action was compulsory)
(♦) Showing compassion and understanding when others make mistakes (all kinds of mistakes!)
Simple kindnesses won’t take much time at all, but they can make an incredible difference in this world! We can follow in the example of Jesus, and small kindnesses make up a large portion of that goal.
