Research shows that those who perform acts of kindness become kinder, more
grateful and happier, which can spill over, creating a domino effect that can ignite a community.
Secret acts of kindness can restore hope and bring fresh strength to those who are desperate to believe that someone cares. Few things are as clear in scripture as the
biblical imperative to care for widows. Valentines Day provides a chance to show compassion and kindness to the widowed.
How do we change the world? One act of kindness after another. Hold a door, make eye contact and give a cheerful good morning. Give a compliment, a kind word, a pat on the shoulder or if you know them, a hug.
Some like to do an act of kindness, in secret, to honor the memory of a loved one.
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. (Ephesians 6:8 KJV)
