Kinder is Better

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

I would suggest that one of the biggest wins we can experience in life is improving our attitudes. It’s likely that some of your biggest problems can be traced back to a needed attitude adjustment.

An attitude is your mindset about something. It’s the way you think about God, yourself, others and life. Your attitudes drive and direct your behavior.

In many different places in the Bible, we find lists of attitudes that are critical to spiritual, psychological, relational and work success. Here’s an example in Colossians 3:12 “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”

One attitude we’re told to develop as Jesus followers is kindness. What is kindness? Kind people are generous, friendly, considerate, helpful and warm. They treat others with respect and stand ready to assist in practical ways. Kindness is an attitude before it’s an action. When kindness is in your heart, it will come out in your words and actions. Kind people are rare. When you are kind, you set yourself apart. You also help others get to know God. Kinder is better!
