What’s on your menu today? Vegetables or steak?

 

Meals, love, hatred, Proverbs 15

Have you ever sat with someone you loved to have a meal? Even if the food wasn’t that great, you were ok and content, comfortable in the fact that life was good right? But let’s flip that around and think about having a meal with someone you did not like. This person may have been abrasive, judgemental and rude (a real back-stabber gossipy type even) but you had no choice but to sit and eat with them (think work, family or church related scenarios for example). Did you feel as though the food was going to make you ill? Did your intestines feel as though they were tied in knots? Did your stomach or chest ache? Did you wonder just what you would have to do to detox your body and mind from the meal when you got back home? Yup, I believe we’ve all been there and done that.

So all I’m going to do now is refer you to the wisdom of Proverbs while asking this one last question:

“What are you eating today and who are you sitting down to eat it with?”

Happy World Kindness Day

 

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:24-25 (NIV)

Today is World Kindness Day! How awesome is that?

And did you know the World Kindness Movement started World Kindness Day in 1998 or that its observation has since spread to 28 countries? No? Well, neither did I but you can go here to learn more.

In a nutshell then, our focus today is simple: we have to be kinder and more considerate of others, we have to show love and genuine compassion for our fellow humans, and most of all we have to remember that it does not cost a lot of money if any at all to simply be … kind; just ask Glen Campbell and then in kindness, share this post 🙂
