Keep Calm and Be Kind

-
Did you read the concept of the Butterfly Effect? If not you should definitely check it out here! I am a big supporter and promoter of the Butterfly Effect so I wanted to continue our little talk about this amazing concept!


Be Kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32

Did you know that how we treat others is a direct correlation to how God will treat you! The way you treat others effects your blessings and the favor of God over your life. Do you act, speak, and love in kindness or are you speaking poorly of others, acting in a way that is not pleasing to God. You can't expect a blessing or live in victory if you are being rude and inconsiderate. 

See that none of you repays another with evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody
1 Thessalonians 5:15

Aim and seek to show God's mercy with others! Even when people are being mean and inconsiderate to us we must be proactive in showing goodness and kindness to them. I know that can be extremely hard. I remember when someone was picking on me when I was younger instead of letting that get to me and try seek to be mean back, I chose to be nice to that person. They may have been caught off guard wondering "why is she being so nice when I'm so mean to her." Eventually they will stop or all together start being nice to you! Those people who are mean to you may not deserve your kindness but we need to walk in love and in kindness just the way God is with us! Just think of it this way, we have done some things that wasn't pleasing to God but did he punish us, did he go out of his way to do evil, NO, he showed mercy on us! 


Simple Ways to Show Kindness

Go the extra mile 
When someone goes out of their way to be rude to you don't go their way instead go the opposite and show love and mercy. For example if someone you know just walks pass you even when they seen you, don't get upset instead say "hi" with a nice smile! They'll have to return the favor and if not at least you tried right?!?

Get the Conversation Rolling
How about when one of your friends stops talking to you for no reason instead of doing the same thing go up to her and say "We were such good friends and you are such an amazing person where did we go wrong?" She'll have to say something!

Heal a Wounded Heart
If someone goes off on you for no reason at all or if they are just having a bad,  don't fly off the handle with them! Instead say "You seem upset, how can I help?" They may break down and start balling in front of you, show love by being there for them. You never know what people are going through!

Evil is never overcome by more evil. It only makes it worse.
Overcome Evil with Good!
  Show Love, MercyForgiveness!
***
God will see what you are doing and God will reward YOU! By doing good you are rewarding yourself...Aint that something! God is our vindicator, he will not let justice go unserved! You are not getting the short-end of the stick. God will make sure that Justice is served on your part. All you have to do is remain calm and peaceful...YOU GOT THIS!!!
