"Love is patient, love is kind." 1 Corinthians 13:4
(from the NIV: New International Version of the Bible)
A Week of Kindness:
Today is day four of our kindness week.
Question for Reflection:
Today, I'd like for you to reflect on the following passage of Scripture...
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV: New International Version of the Bible)
Bearing One Another's Burdens:
I like to think of the passage above, from Matthew 11 whenever my wife is tired. When she stays up late to work, I resist the temptation to ask, "What the heck are you working on until 2 a.m.?" Instead, I try to make her burden lighter by taking up more of her side of the yoke by offering gestures of kindness.
Making your spouse breakfast, or packing their lunch can ease the burden of the simple things they may not have time to do when their schedule gets hectic.
Remember, Our Time on Earth is Precious--don't waste it:
