"Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart" (Proverbs 3:3).
I absolutely love kind people. Don't you? I love the spirit of the people who are friendly and courteous to people simply, because it's the right thing to do. You ever go to a restaurant with people who are respectful to the waiters and waitresses? That warms my heart. Or the people who are pleasant to sales people? It's one of those overlooked traits that some people have that others can take pointers from. People who possess genuine kindness and truth are more fun to be around. They operate in positiveness, which is welcoming and contagious. I wish there was more of that in the world. We can never have enough of it. Jesus was kind, I don't know any scripture of Him ever being mean or disrespectful to anyone. Even when he turned over the tables in the temple (Matthew 21:12), He did that with respect and he also had a good reason for it.
That's yet another reason I love Him so much. He was kind, compassionate, gentle, loving, and more. What a wonderful role model to emulate.
