Thought for the Day: I don’t often quote Lady Gaga, yet as I have continued to reflect on kindness, I found her words to be exactly what I needed to hear. She wrote:
I’ve been searching for ways to heal myself, and I’ve found that kindness is the best way.
Lady Gaga’s words have me rethinking the Proverb. I always assumed the one cheered up was the one on the receiving end of the kind word, but could it be that a kind word offered can lift the person who offered it? Not that we offer words of kindness with selfish intent, but an auxiliary benefit for the one who shared the kindness is not necessarily a bad thing. Go share some kindness and make the world a better place, and in doing so discover that you have made your little part of the world better.
Prayer: Just the thought that I have lifted someone else’s spirit can bring me joy. Holy God, let’s get to work spreading kindness that lifts everyone including me. Amen.
