Simple Acts of Kindness. The Daily Devotion for March 27

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do so. (Proverbs 3:27 NKJV)

Simple acts of kindness can make all the difference. I challenge as you go through your day to look for all the many opportunities you have to make a difference in the life of another by doing something good, something kind. Maybe you can think back over the past day or two and recall opportunities you had to make a difference but instead chose to ignore. We all have the potential to do something good for another. Being kind does not mean you have to be wealthy or powerful resources. It can be as simple as holding a door, helping someone load a heavy or awkward package in the car, writing an encouraging note,  a kind word, buying someone a cup of coffee, or maybe just lending a sympathetic or listening ear.

Besides bring happiness to another by your good deeds, there is another consequence. When we help others, we help ourselves. We feel better about ourselves, we take pride (hopefully healthy pride) in the fact we were able to help another, and the more we help others the better we feel and the more we want those feelings to continue. And what an incredible example we can set for our kids and others to follow.

Today’s verse makes me recall the words of the famous 18th preacher John Wesley:

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can,  in all the ways you can, in all he places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can”.

To be honest, I don’t know how much more I can expound on this verse. It doesn’t get too much more straightforward than this. Do something good for someone else. You never know what another person might be facing in their life at that very moment and what your act of kindness might mean to them.

A simple act of kindness can make all the difference.
