“He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding” (Ephesians 1:7-8, NLT).

Kindness is something everyone values, but is so rare we often find ourselves surprised when it happens. We don’t normally think of God as being kind, but since it means of a “good or benevolent nature or disposition” it makes perfect sense. Not only is he kind, he is the source and origin of kindness.

When you are kind to someone – when you show them consideration or helpfulness – you are expressing the love of God. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he showers us with it. As you enjoy the showers of God’s kindness today, don’t keep it to yourself. Let a little splash onto someone else.
