Daily Devotional – Love Acts in Kindness

By on February 4, 2020
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Proverbs 31: 26-31. When we are instructed to do unto others, as we would have them do unto us. I am reminded of how I would prefer to be treated with kindness. I would much prefer someone to speak to me kindly, softly and not confrontational. 

She opens her mouth with wisdom,
    and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
    and let her works praise her in the gates
.

So often the message can be lost in the tone of one’s voice. It is not what you say, but how you say it is often quoted. If you have the words of wisdom, you would want others to hear and heed them. Although if your tone of anger or frustration is heard, so often your words of wisdom fall on deaf ears.

Many women of all ages work diligently in their households, places of work, and the community. It is always too easy to become overburdened and overwhelmed. So often you may not feel praised and appreciated by your spouse, children, or recipients of your labor. Labor and strive for God. Give God all that you have, tirelessly labor for Him in love.

When we labor for God, it seems much easier to be kind to those that are the recipients of our labor. No matter the burden we take on for God, He always gives us rest and peace. He empowers us to love those around us and when we work with His peace and rest, we will find it so much easier to speak and act kindly!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, that You gave us a burden that is light and easy. Although we may give 100% for You, You reward us with Your peace, rest and love. Help me to take on Your burden and not that of the tasks at hand so that I can love and be kind to those around me today.

In Jesus name
Amen
