The focus of todays blog is Love is Kind in 1 Corinthians 13:4.



The Biblical Greek word for Love is kind is

chrésteuomai.

Phonetic pronounciation is khraste-yoo'-om-ahee


Being kind means to full of service to others and gentle.


It's easy to forget the power of kindness when life is stressful, chaotic, and busy. As Christians, we are called to show kindness and love to those around us. Kindness can be something as small as a smile or a word of encouragement.


Kindness is a powerful form of ministry. As Christians, we are called to show compassion and care for each other through our daily actions and words.


When it comes to living a life of kindness, the Bible has plenty to say.

From small gestures of love and compassion to bigger acts of charity, the Bible is filled with teachings on kindness.


Here are some of the Bible verses on kindness to inspire and encourage you.


“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” -Ephesians 4:32

But when you are kind to others, you help yourself; you are repaid many times over.” - Proverbs 11:17
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” -Luke 6:31
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” - Ephesians 4:32

When you show your love for another person in a kind and compassionate way, it encourages trust and strengthens relationships.


To be kind is to understand the thoughts, feelings, and actions of others. It’s important to remember that even if someone isn’t behaving in a way that you appreciate, love can still find a way to open a conversation and resolve differences.


The Bible tells us in Matthew 5:44

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Kindness enables us to choose to be gentle instead of hostile and understanding over anger.


Loving in a kind way is also one of the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

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

Therefore, let us pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help us show loving kindness in our daily lives.


Its time to love with open hearts, act with kindness and compassion in everything we do.


Much love

Sylvia.
