On the wonderful, supernatural virtue of kindness

Posted by Stephen Witmer on September 3rd, 2016

Kindness is more difficult and more powerful and more supernatural than we think. It’s not humdrum, boring, or bland. Kindness does not equal ‘nice.’ Instead, it’s a God-produced inclination of the heart to be generously oriented toward another person, whether they deserve it or not. God is kind. I’m not nearly as kind as I want to be. I pray God will grow me in kindness. I’ve written a new article on kindness over at the Desiring God website that you can check out if you’re interested.
