A friend and I were discussing “kindness” and what that might look like. We were both facing confusing or difficult situations and we were brainstorming how to be “kind.” We had a few answers, but decided to spend a while studying kindness and see what else we could learn.
definition of “kind”: of a good or benevolent nature or disposition, showing benevolence, considerate, helpful, gentle (benevolent means expressing goodwill, being charitable, desiring to help)
The definition helps a bit and we will look through scripture too. Here’s one off the top of my head.
But the fruit of the Spirit is… kindness… Galatians 5:22 NAS
It’s certainly something we need to pray for and let God teach us about. It’s something we can grow in and do better with practice. And who better to practice on that our husbands. :) I’m thinkin’ our husbands are really going to be in favor of our study and practice time!
What does kindness mean to you and how can you live that out with your husband? When does he need consideration or gentleness? How can you benefit him or do good for him?
