Sunday Morning Coffee - Kindness









Good Morning, dear readers.  As I read my daily journal this morning, I was inspired to share with each of you.

There was a photo shared on social media once, by someone that witnessed an act of Kindness.
As an older passenger sat on a New York subway, a younger man sitting next to him fell asleep and gently his head fell onto the shoulder of the older man. Other passengers offered to wake him up, but quietly the older man said, "He must be tired and had a long day, let him sleep. We've all been there".
The older man's kindness reflects the heart of God.. we all long for this. 
In Mark 10:13-16, We see the gentleness in Jesus when the little children came to see him, and the disciples tried to stop them. Jesus said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Jesus took the child and sat him on his lap and blessed him.
To find this kind of kindness we all must come to him as a child humble ourselves before him.
We can be assured that we are safe in Him, whether we are asleep or awake, we can LEAN on Him, when we are tired and can find rest for He is a safe place for us.

Under His wings, I am safely abiding,
though the night deepens
and tempests are wild;
still I can trust Him-I know He will keep me,
He has redeemed me and I am His child.

Cushing


We can all be blessed when we offer
Kindness to others!


Have a Blessed Sunday
