• “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Act of Kindness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/24/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: According to 1 Corinthians 13, one of the marks of love is kindness. It is also a fruit of the Spirit. As women, we’re called to a proactive kind of kindness—to offer hospitality and make guests feel comfortable, to give to those who are in need. Wives are called to serve their husbands. Moms are called to serve their children.

Kindness can take different forms in different seasons of life, but there’s so much value in sending cards and notes, being sensitive to listen, and in meeting practical needs.

Kindness doesn’t just involve loving actions. It also involves doing them with a loving heart—acting through God’s power and for His glory.

How can you show kindness out of a kind heart in your season of life?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
