Proverbs 11:17 ” A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself.”

Demonstrating kindness to others can only benefit ourselves…for it doesn’t cost a thing to be kind.  Matthew 7:12 is considered “The Golden Rule”, its principle being,  we need to treat others as we would wish to be treated.  But instead, we human beings usually demand love, respect, and appreciation… whether we deserve it or not.  The Golden Rule simply says…Do you want respect, love and appreciation?…then show respect, love and appreciation to others first.  Jesus desires us to be proactive in our kindness…not waiting until someone is kind to us first, but rather reaching out with kindness first,  regardless if it’s reciprocated or not.
