Seen On a Church Sign

Lettuce Be Kind-Let Us Be Kind

We are continuing onward in our study entitled “God’s Garden,” based on the Church sign you can see here in the post. I have no great lesson today, merely some nuggets from God’s Word. This is homework! Read, study and meditate on these verses. The homework is: if you find more, feel free to add them in the comments section!

Verses from the NASB

Ephesians 4:32Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men.

Colossians 3:12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

Proverbs 3:3 Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.

Hebrews 13:2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.

Hebrews 13:2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.

Acts 28:2 The natives showed us extraordinary kindness; for because of the rain that had set in and because of the cold, they kindled a fire and received us all.

That’s only a few, as God’s Word has a lot to say about being kind to one another. What’s your favorite verse on kindness?

  1. Love the church sign, Wally. This verse is one of my favorites, “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.” In the modern world we tend to view strangers with suspicion and our culture has shifted so people have become more distrustful of one another. Someone once joked that if an angel showed up, we’d probably demand to see their ID. While it’s good to have some common sense, there’s also something to be said for letting our defenses down.

    • That’s a good point IB. You could perhaps even say it’s not our job to defend ourselves but God’s. How do we weight that with common sense and remain Biblical? That’s actually a real question. I personally don’t know the answer
