A grace that all can understand
(J. C. Ryle, "The Gospel
of Luke" 1858)
If there is one feature in Jesus' character more
notable than another, it is His unwearied
kindness and love.
Let us, like Him, show kindness to everyone with
whom we have to do. Let us strive to have . . .
an eye ready to see,
a hand ready to help,
a heart ready to feel, and
a will ready to do good to all.
Let us be ready to weep with those who weep,
and rejoice with those who rejoice. This is one
way to recommend our religion, and make it
beautiful before men.
Kindness is a grace that all can understand.
Kindness is one way to be like our blessed Savior.
Kindness is one way to be happy in the world.
Kindness always brings its own reward.
The kind person will seldom be without friends.
