The 30 Day Praise Challenge–Day 4
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:24)
Injustice seems to be all around us. Just turn on the tv or pick up a newspaper. Yet if you look you will notice that kindness abounds. Kindness abounds amidst a broken world.
I spent some time looking back over last week and recognized acts of kindness that took place. While at work I watched one resident care for her neighbor by picking up the crocheted lap quilt that had fallen on the floor and placing it back on her neighbor’s lap. I experienced kindness shown to me as several people thanked me for coming and making music with them in a nursing home. I even enjoyed the kindness of my college roommate making it a point to come and visit me as she drove from one end of the state to the other to attend her nephew’s graduation. Kindness abounds if you are looking.
Today’s devotional time reminded me that God is good. He is kind. God shows His kindness in the “thank you’s” and the time others take to spend with me. What about you? Where do you recognize the kindness and goodness of God?
