What is kindness? How is it demonstrated in the good news of Jesus?

What is kindness? How is it demonstrated in the good news of Jesus?

Compassion for the world

I desperately need more kindness and compassion in my life. I need to judge less and love more. That is the way of Jesus.

That is what Jesus calls us to do. We know we want others to be kind to us.We need to be kind and compassionate to others no matter what.

Kindness is the quality of compassion and generosity, characteristic of God’s dealings towards the weak and poor, and demanded of believers. The kindness is also shown in the words and deeds of Jesus the Messiah.

Has God Forsaken Us? 

Long time friend of the Inn, Judy Ward, blesses us with her wisdom during our 2019 Appeal to Heaven Conference.

Scripture

Isaiah 49:13-16 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Shout for joy, you heavens!
Earth, rejoice!
Mountains break into joyful shouts!
For the Lord has comforted his people,
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.

Zion says, “The Lord has abandoned me;
the Lord has forgotten me!”
“Can a woman forget her nursing child,
or lack compassion for the child of her womb?
Even if these forget,
yet I will not forget you.
Look, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are continually before me.

How Deep Is God’s Love? 

Summer intern Marcy dives into the book of Hosea and how deep God’s love is for her.

Scripture

Hosea 11:8 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

How can I give you up, Ephraim?
How can I surrender you, Israel?
How can I make you like Admah?
How can I treat you like Zeboiim?
I have had a change of heart;
my compassion is stirred!

His Compassions Fail Not

Lamentations 3:22
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.

While reading 1 Kings this morning, I was faced yet again with the fact that whenever I think I have the Lord “figured out,” that what I’m thinking is what He’s thinking, He blows my mind… a fresh revelation of what Isaiah 55:9 proclaims:

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
