The small coins of love

Be kind and compassionate to one another. Ephesians 4:32

We should be always kind. Nothing is more helpful than kindness. Nothing else does more to brighten the world and sweeten other lives.

Kindnesses are the small coins of love. We should always be ready to scatter these coins wherever we go. Kindnesses are usually little things that we do as we go along our daily path — wayside acts, touches, words, little helpful things. We never know when we do any little thing in love for Christ, what the end of it will be — what a harvest of good will finally come from it. It is better to do a thousand little kindnesses every day than to do a great deed of love once in a year, and then fail to be kind in the common days.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12
