The Advantage of Being Kind

There are times when I think to myself, “… am I being to kind?” “…am I being a push-over?” “…who is running over my toes now?” It just feels like sometimes being kind, can also be, being taken advantage of?

It’s difficult to overcome at times. It can make you angry, resentful, and disgusted. How do you overcome this? I think back to what Jesus said on the cross… “And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments” (Luke 23:34 NIV).

God wants us to be an example to the world. And at times we may be taken advantage, but as Christian’s we need to overcome and show grace and love. Romans 12:20 (NIV) says, “To the contrary, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Swamp them with grace and love, and they will be awaken by your actions.

There is the common theme… show grace and love in all we do. Lead by example.
