This week I am talking about radical kindness, the kind of kindness that doesn’t count the cost. Kindness that’s bred in the bone as a follower of Christ. Kindness that you don’t have to think about, you just do.
When I think about kindness, a beautiful song comes to mind, by Steve Bell, whose uses lyrics by Brian McLaren:
Christ has no body here but ours
No hands no feet here on earth but ours.
Ours are the eyes through which he looks
On this world with kindness
Ours are the hands through which he works
Ours are the feet on which he moves
Ours are the voices through which he speaks
To this world with kindness
Through our touch, our smile, our listening ear
Embodied in us, Jesus is living here
Let us go now, inspirited
Into this world with kindness
p.s. Don’t forget that this week you can show kindness by bringing non-perishable food items for community care to church.
