The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 10 November 2022“Kindness Is Everything” By Siera Grace Toney (District of Columbia, USA)

TOPIC: “Kindness Is Everything”

Siera Grace Toney (District of Columbia, USA)

TODAY’S READING

Matthew 25:31-40

KEY VERSE: Jesus said, “I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. Also, I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear. And I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.” – Matthew 25:35-36 (CEB)

MESSAGE

In recent years, I have noticed a rise in social messaging around kindness. For example, “Be Kind” has been added to email signatures, social media statuses, t-shirts, and face masks. And “Kindness Is Everything” has become a new rallying cry for social justice.

In Matthew 25:35-36, Jesus shows the eternal importance of Christian kindness: feeding the hungry and quenching people’s thirst; welcoming the stranger and clothing the naked; caring for the sick and visiting the imprisoned. These kindnesses are more than a “nice” way of being. They are a communal commitment to meeting every human’s basic needs. These acts mean everything to many people who are in desperate need. And radical kindness opens the door to blessings, eternal life, and the kingdom of God. When we act in kindness and care for those who are in need, we care for Jesus.

If we are truly followers of Christ, we must understand that kindness is everything — for those in need and for our own souls. Without this understanding, attempts at a ministry of justice are incomplete. As a follower of Jesus, I think “Kindness Is Everything” is a mantra all Christians can rally around.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

I can do justice through acts of Christian kindness.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Lord Jesus, show us how to live out your truth that kindness is everything in the midst of these challenging times. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS

For more kindness in the world
