Galatians 5:22,23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

One of the fruits of the Spirit is kindness. Kindness is defined as, the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Along with the other eight fruits of the Spirit, true kindness is imputed by the power of the Holy Spirit in a life totally sold out to Jesus.

Aisha was raised in a good home. Her parents are Hindus, therefore believed in many gods, including the Lord God Almighty. However, Aisha was brought up with no understanding of who Jesus Christ is. When she reached her teens, Aisha rebelled. She became a very withdrawn and angry person. She trusted no one and was very cynical. However, one girl in her high school class was able to break through her hard shell. Abi knew Jesus as her personal Lord and saviour and extruded the love of God. She showed unconditional kindness to Aisha, despite her aggressive behaviour.

“I could not understand why she was so kind to me,” said Aisha. “She would always sit with me at lunchtime, often not saying a word – just near to me. She would buy me drinks and pastries from the canteen. And when I was in a mood, she would just listen to me rant. I did not deserve Abi’s kindness.” Abi’s kindness eventually softened Aisha’s hardened heart. She was able to share the love of God, through the death and resurrection of Jesus, with Aisha. Aisha surrendered her heart to Christ.

The quality of being friendly, generous and considerate, kindness can shatter the hardest of hearts. Kindness is self-sacrificing. Kindness, the least appreciated of all noble traits, is the greatest of humane qualities because, kindness acts out love. God was so kind to you and me, though we did not deserve it, he sent Jesus to heal us of our rebellion. Only by his generous and considerate outpouring of the Holy Spirit into our lives can we extrude the same kindness shown by young Abi.

I pray that I will be a greater witness to the kindness that you have shown me

“Lord, my Lord, I’m sorry if I have hardened my heart to the needs of others. I submit now to the outworking of your Holy Spirit in my life. I ask that you manifest the fruit of the Spirit in me, especially the fruit of kindness. Help me to notice the needs of those around me. Help me to be friendly, generous and considerate. Use me to soften the hearts of other people who are suffering the anguish of scepticism and cynicism. I pray that I will be a greater witness to the kindness that you have shown me. Amen.”
