Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death…

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Kindness is what God showed us in Christ Jesus

We know that God placed the penalty that was supposed to be for us upon the Lord Jesus Christ.

And now we are able to walk free in the righteousness of God according to the Scriptures. Glory to God!

Our Bible Verses About Kindness and Goodness

These Bible verses about kindness are going to be long and some of them are going to be short. They're taken from both the Old Testament and the New Testament with the hope and prayer that the Lord will use them to show you how to live with other people to His glory.

The Lord Jesus, in fact, encourages us to love one another as He has loved us. And we know that this love He demonstrated He did by doing what The Father said, by laying down His life. Would you lay down your life with someone else? Would you display brotherly kindness to your neighbor? 

The Power To Be Kind Comes From Being Led By The Holy Spirit

Will you be led by the Holy Spirit in your actions? Will you show great kindness to those who are undeserving of it? Will you demonstrate merciful kindness to those who are indeed merciless? Will you show the kind of love and compassion that the Lord in the Old Testament and the New Testament demonstrated?

Will you with your whole heart display the kindness that God's chosen ones, in fact, are commanded to show? God's goodness, Scripture says, leads sinners to repentance.

You Might Never Know How Transformative Kindness Can Be

We don't know what act of kindness, compassion or goodness will lead someone to really take inventory of their lives and say I can't continue living the way that I have been. But, what we do know is that the Lord extended His tender mercy to us. And so we are to extend unusual kindness and mercy to others. The scriptures talk about gentleness and faithfulness and all these aspects of the fruit of the Spirit.

May we show the gentleness and kindness of God, for we know that it is because of His great compassion that we have life everlasting.
