Who do I think I am hurting? Cruelty is intended to hurt someone else. It actually backfires and hurts me.
Jesus knew this. Solomon knew this. Kindness is the cornerstone of a loving life.
God’s goal for me is to be kind. It is a simple goal and achievable with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead.
When you’re kind to others, you help yourself; when you’re cruel to others, you hurt yourself.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:17)
