Good Morning and Happy Thursday Saints.
Proverbs 11:17 “YOU DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR WHEN YOU ARE KIND. IF YOU ARE CRUEL, YOU ONLY HURT YOURSELF.”
Did you notice who your kindness to others will also benefit? It will benefit you.
We often think that our kindness will only bless others when it actually benefits us as well.
In fact, the Living Bible translation says, “YOUR OWN SOUL IS NOURISHED WHEN YOU ARE KIND; IT IS DESTROYED WHEN YOU ARE CRUEL.”
We don’t do ourselves any favours when we mistreat other people.
Cruelty to others will do YOU more harm than it will do to the ones you may be tempted to hurt. Being cruel to others is a complete waste of time. If someone has been particularly unkind to you lately – DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR – forgive them and let it go.
Love isn’t just kind, it also keeps no record of wrongs. Being cruel and unforgiving is heavy and burdensome on YOURSELF.
Be kind to yourself and nourish your own soul by being kind to everyone else and forgiving of those who’ve wronged you.
Have a phenomenal day Saints. God bless and lots’a love, Warren.
