Kindness (1 February 2019)

Morning Encounter:

Read:

Your kindness and love will always be with me each day of my life, and I will live forever in your house, Lord.

Psalm 23.6

Reflect: 
‘There is a grace of kind listening, as well as a grace of kind speaking. Many persons, whose manners will stand the test of speaking, break down under the trial of listening.

 (F. Faber)

Respond: 

Give someone your time and full attention today. Listen, really listen to them and avoid saying too much back.

Midday Meditation:

God was kind and decided that Christ would choose us to be God’s own adopted children. God was very kind to us because of the Son he dearly loves, and so we should praise God. Christ sacrificed his life’s blood to set us free, which means that our sins are now forgiven. Christ did this because God was so kind to us. 

(Ephesians 1)

Evening Reflection:

God who sent your Son so that we may draw near to you, give us grace tonight as we end another day. You have overwhelmed us with blessings today! Forgive us for the moments when we were far from you and did not recognize your movements around us. Continue to join our hearts more closely with your own so that we may continually be in fellowship with you through each day. Holy Spirit, stir our hearts toward you. Amen.
