Daily Devotional – Love is Kind

By on November 8, 2019
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Romans 2: 4-11. Can you be kind to someone without loving them? Maybe, but you can not help but be kind to one that you love! Kindness speaks of gentleness and consideration.

Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?

But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.”[a] To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.

As we focus on the characteristics of God that he imparts to us through His love, we come to kindness. Paul says in Romans that “God’s kindness is what leads us to repentance”. So if kindness leads us to repentance, what was your reaction to the last person that wronged you?

As I said earlier, you not but be kind to someone that you love. Are there people that you struggle with being kind to? If so, have you considered your love for them? Perhaps you need to be asking God to give you a greater love for these people.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you that You have continued to be kind to me all my days. Your kindness has demonstrated Your love for me. God, I want to be kind to those around me, so please soften my heart for them. Help me to love them as you do. I know that my kindness will follow.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
