love and kindness go hand in hand

A speaker who deeply impacted me as a new believer, Graham Cooke shared how when He met God, he discovered not only His love, but the kindness person he knew.

Somehow, love and kindness are designed to go hand in hand.

“Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.” 1 Corinthians 16:14 TPT

I’ll be honest. This verse delivered me quite the punch when I read it this morning. Because although I try to be loving and kind, I often fail to do so.

We were never designed to love without Him, for He is the source of all Love and Kindness, as I first heard from Graham Cooke.

I was recently listening to Amanda Cooke (which I do not think is a coincidence today, but His way of grabbing my attention) and the following song caught my eye:

And these lyrics firmly secured this idea of love and kind being intertwined:

“You are kind. Your love is a fury all its own, sweeping the dust and turning feet towards home, carrying the orphans and resetting broken bones. Cause Your love is a fury all its own – You are kind.” – Amanda Cooke, “Kind”

So today God?  Not only did You remind me how loving and kind You are, but how You are able to help me to be loving and kind to those about me when I depend on You to show me how.

For as the Kindest and most Loving person I know, I know You will not let me down when I come to You!
