The world may be full of sorrow and pain. But one kind act a day will keep them away. And the world will never be forever the same.
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop
The word "kindness" came from the Greek word "chrēstotēs." It means “benignity, tender concern, uprightness.” Kindness means kindness in heart and in act. Having genuine concern for others will help us practice being kind. It will make us care for others. And caring for them is an act of kindness itself. Showing your care for others can make the world better.
Kindness is also one of the Fruits of the Spirit. When we live an inspired life, we inevitably become kind-hearted. Kindness springs in us. When we live inspired lives, we are seeing things in a different manner. We look at things differently. We start to understand others. Sometimes, we can understand their suffering. And so, kindness begins to grow on us.
One Kind Act a Day
One kind act per day can change the world for the better. If we help just one person a day with one simple act of kindness, we can make a great impact in the life of that person. Once we do it consistently, we will start seeing the change that we are bringing into this world.
It doesn't matter how big or small you do it. Kindness is kindness. And no matter how you look at it, kindness can change the world for the better. Sometimes, it's the little things and the little words that we utter that occupies the biggest space in a person's heart.
Imagine now that you have done one act of kindness per day. And you did it consistently for 30 days. You have done 30 kind acts in such a short period of time. You have made a small impact in the world. Especially in the lives of the people you helped. Imagine how their world changed in small and big ways. But most important, imagine how your world changed.
What you plant will always grow. What we sow, we will always reap. And what we reap does not equal the things that we sow. What we reap will always be bountiful. When you sow pain, hatred, and suffering, you will reap many of those. But when we sow kindness, compassion, and love, we will reap lots of those. It's better to reap love and kindness than sorrow and pain.
Don't worry if you have not yet reaped what you sow. It is compounding. And once you do reap, you are going to reap in great amounts. First be patient. Then enjoy the wait. But be excited. Soon enough, you are going to reap tons of what you've sown. Be excited especially if you've sown many acts of kindness.
Le Mot De La Fin.
Kindness may be cliche. But what it brings to you and to the world is real. It brings happiness and hope. Without these two, life will be dull. Give one simple act of kindness per day to anyone you meet. Life is not about making meaning of our lives for ourselves. It is about making meaning of our lives for others. So serve people. And give one kind act.
