Any Kindness That I Can Show – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 732 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from William Penn, and it is, “I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
Any Kindness That I Can Show
Kindness is not an inconvenience to be avoided but a characteristic to be embraced.
Sometimes it is as simple as a pleasant smile, a warm handshake, sending a thank you note, assisting a neighbor with a household project, or being with a friend in distress. I have heard it said, “The greatest thing a man can do for his heavenly Father is to be kind to his other children.”
Kindness originates from the heart of God. God is kind because he cannot be otherwise. It is essential to his nature. Likewise, that kindness becomes a part of our new nature, which comes to us through the Holy Spirit. Kindness becomes a part of our conduct because our character is rooted in God.
Kindness provides for other people’s needs. Kindness is more than a pat on the back while saying, “Have a nice day.” Kindness gets involved. It gets its hands dirty. It’s visible and active. It moves beyond the spiritual and the emotional to the physical and practical.
The watchword of today’s society is “Don’t get involved.” But at the heart of a kind person is involvement. They see the needs and seek to fill them. They are willing to risk in order to help others out. They know they can’t do everything, but they can do something.
1 Thessalonians 5:15 – See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people.
That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged. If you enjoy these quotes, I have created and published a searchable database of over 10,000 quotes that I have collected for many years. If you would like free access to my database of inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
