Paul’s Recipe for Reducing Stress pt 2 – Kindness


Philippians 4:5 – Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. (KJV)

Part 1 of this series – Rejoice! 

The Lord is coming soon, if we want him to find us possessing the “mind of Christ” (Philippians 2:5)  we need him to find us as a people who are patient, kind and gentle of spirit.

We know from 1 Corinthians 13:4 that Love is long suffering, kind, not envious, not boastful – exactly the kind of traits that moderate people have. Being loving and gentle in all situations is an outstanding way to teach our worldly friends what being a Christian is all about.

Paul reminds us to have a loving attitude to our neighbors in Romans 13:10-11 and James 5:7-9 says … Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord...

The Lord is coming – a kind and gentle lifestyle will help you be ready and you will influence others to be ready.

    I agree that kindness is an important and wonderful way to show people that you are a Christian. Sometimes, I wonder if some people have forgotten that based on some of the comments that they make to other people. May we always strive to be kind to all those with whom we come in contact.
