As a Christian Pastor, I have learned that I can find goodness in practically anyone or anything if I look hard enough. Likewise, I have never met a person that can’t teach me something, if I am open to learn. The scripture says, “There needs be opposition in all things.” Simply put, there are two sides of every coin; there is good and bad in every person, faith and creed and since “truth is independent” from its source, I have learned to accept truth no matter where I find it.
Kindness involves “accepting” others for whatever goodness they may have and realizing that all humanity is the offspring of one loving God and that each of us is on the same path.

What does it mean to be kind? To be kind is to understand that we are all offspring of the same loving God and that he loves each of his children equally. Kindness manifests itself though the awareness of human similarities in feelings and needs. Like compassion, kindness is a profound human feeling often prompted by the pain of others.
“There is no they, only us. We are part of a large fellowship called the human race. We all hurt the same. We all love the same. We all bleed the same. We all need understanding and care.

Kindness is like a fresh breeze that relieves the aching muscles of tired souls after a hard day’s labor. Kindness can restore hope to a struggling heart though a single act.
