During Lent, we are reminded of how important it is to be kind in our everyday lives. Kindness is a strong force that can make the world a better place.

It’s a small but meaningful action that can make someone feel better and change their whole day.

Being kind doesn’t have to be big or complicated. It can be as easy as holding the door open for someone, being there to listen, or even just giving a stranger a smile. It’s about making an effort to connect with others and show them that they are important and loved.

1. Proverbs 19:17

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.”


2. Ephesians 4:32

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”


3. Colossians 3:12

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”


4. Philippians 4:5

“Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.”


5. Luke 6:35

“But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”


So, let’s use this time of Lent to develop more kindness in our hearts and minds. Let’s try to be nicer to ourselves, our loved ones, and the rest of the world.

By doing this, we can really make a difference in the lives of the people we meet and help spread love and happiness wherever we go.
