Kindness and Evangelism

February 5, 2008 — Leave a comment

Kindness is a manifestation of love that is sometimes withheld because it is difficult.

It’s easy to say that I love everyone in this world, but sometimes it is difficult to be kind to the angry man across the street by offering to mow his yard while he recovers from surgery.

It’s easy to say that I love everyone in this world, but sometimes it is difficult to be kind to the customer service representative on the other end of the phone who is trying to explain to me why the insurance company is not going to pay the claim.

It’s easy to say that I love everyone in this world, but—if we’re honest—we’d probably admit that it is sometimes difficult to be kind to the guy at work who seems intent on offending God with his words, thoughts, and actions, but unless and until we Christians are kind to lost people—they will never believe us when we tell them how much Jesus loves them.
