Sharing Some Kindness

From Galatians 5:22-25:  “ By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  There is no law against such things.  And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.   If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.”

Seeing mankind standing along the road

Bearing heavy burdens, life’s overload


Stopping to say, travel the other way

Sharing some kindness, from our Lord today


Shining Jesus’ light, for all to follow

Hearing His Word, rich wisdom to swallow


Overlooking life’s narrow-minded walk

Sharing some kindness, truth becomes our rock


Lending helping hands, sisters and brothers

Showering daily grace, like none other


Forsaking life’s blindness, opening eyes

Sharing some kindness, never in disguise


Helping others who travel beside us

Inviting them, catching rides on God’s bus


Loving with patience, goodwill overflows

Sharing some kindness, warming hearts aglow


Gifting Christ’s kindness, paying it forward

Harvesting endless treasures from God’s Word


Recalling Christ’s call, handing out His love

Sharing some kindness, gathered from above

This poem is inspired by singer Glen Campbell’s classic tune, “Try a Little Kindness.”  Here is one of his renditions of this remarkable song.  Pay it forward, show the world some kindness.
