Try to be a little kinder

"Kindness is treating others the way God treats you"

   Perhaps, a number of writers and speakers have already went through this particular instance where they considered explaining what kindness is. Even the people closest to us may have told us about how important it is to be kind to other people either to a member of a family, a friend or a stranger. Apparently, I'm adding this article to the chain that's been circling around the world telling people about kindness. And so I really found it hard to find a different approach in covering this matter in order for me to augment the significance of kindness to a person's living.

   Technically, being kind means "of a good or benevolent nature or disposition, as a person". However, this definition only stands with itself because people of today are holding to thoughtlessness and selfish indifference. Brought by modernization, we have been taught indirectly to put ourselves first before others and we would always reason out "survival" everytime we get to be reminded of helping others. Personally, being kind is not just about giving something up for someone. Kindness is also understanding, sensitivity and free of judging. As much as it may sound cliche but being kind can really save the world like the one did by our Savior Jesus Christ when he sacrificed himself for the salvation of man. It awakened us from our nightmare and opened our eyes to God's unconditional love.

   Everyday we wake up and realized it's another day. Another day means another life to live and another chance to live our best. We go through the day with guidance even if we don't see it or feel it. We go to work or school with strength even if sometimes we feel lazy or sick. We get another chance to socialize, be with friends and do things like humans should do. These are the everyday blessings that most of the time we forget to count at the end of the day but then God continues to shower us with blessings even if we tend to be forgetful. It's his kindness that he's showing us.

   I'm only trying to say is try to be a little kinder.

-Titus 3:4

"The kindnesss and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared."
