Can You Spare a Little Kindness?

Feed my sheep.
  —John 21:17

Seven disciples had fished all night and were wasted. Jesus cooked a meal, set a table, and invited them to breakfast.

After breakfast, Jesus and Peter took a walk. Three times Jesus asked Peter if he loved him. Three times Peter said yes. And three times Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”

That’s the way it works. First, he feeds us; then tells us to feed others.

You will cross paths with someone today who is spiritually and emotionally malnourished . . . starving for the touch of the Savior through you; craving the taste of kindness.

“There are three things that are important in human life,” said Henry James. “The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; the third is to be kind.”

That’s a meal you can provide.

A single act of kindness may make an
impression that lasts a lifetime.
