August 1–God’s Kind of Kindness! God’s Follow-up Plan!

But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you

Love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.

Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful just as your Father is merciful. Luke 6:27-28, 35-36

As we hear—and accept—God’s kind of kindness offered to us through the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ, God’s kind of kindness has a follow-up plan for each one of us!

God’s follow-up plan is for a transformation so real and deep to occur in each of our lives—our minds, our attitudes and our actions—that we, as children of the Most High, will reflect God’s kind of kindness to others.  

God’s follow-up plan intends that God’s kind of kindness transforms absolutely everything within us…and everything within the way we think and speak, act and re-act in every one of our relationships. Including with ourselves.

Through God’s kind of kindness we, as children of the Most High, are empowered to love our enemies, do good to those who hate us, bless those who curse us, pray for those who mistreat us, give generously without any expectation of return. We are empowered to give God’s kind of kindness to even the most ungrateful and nasty (wicked) people in our lives.

God’s kind of kindness ain’t no small thing!

God’s kind of kindness is outrageous and extravagant, generous and compassionate, active and intentional! This is the kind of kindness that God has given to us!

And God’s follow-up plan for us, as children of the Most High, is to give to others that same kind of kindness—in all of its outrageous and extravagant, generous and compassionate, active and intentional ways!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
