The more kindness we spread, the better!
Amen to that, Mimi! <3
I recently have been researching this Jewish doctrine of "chesed" which is basically translated into "loving kindness." as in how Christ loved the church like his bride and that we should adopt that same loving attitude towards the world. Sometimes easier said than done in this world, but it's one of the cornerstone principles of Jewish faith, and I definitely think a rule for all of us to live by.
I agree. It is not always an easy thing to do, we are so skilled at responding to negativity with more of the same, which only causes things to escalate. The power of one small act of kindness is amazing. We need to teach that to our children too!
Very nice quote. Good to know some little gesture can spread far.
Thank you, Ellen! Kindness has a ripple effect for sure! When someone is kind to us we feel better about life and that tends to reflect in how we treat the next person we encounter.
It serves as a great reminder, doesn't it? :-)
Josie, a positive attitude offers hope to the discouraged and light to a darkened world. What a wonderful quote for this week's Coffee Chat prompt. Thanks for the inspiration and the visit, my friend.
Thank you Cathy! Hope is such a precious commodity and it's something we can so easily give to other people!
I wonder how many miracles I miss or don't see because I am too preoccupied with me to be kind?
Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
