Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

May 03, 2011 (kindness and goodness)

kindness and goodness

“Kindness is a sincere desire for the happiness of others;
goodness is the activity calculated to advance that happiness.
Kindness is the inner disposition,
created by the Holy Spirit,
that causes us to be sensitive to the needs of others,
whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Goodness is kindness in action – words and deeds.
Because of this close relationship,
we often use the two words interchangeably.”
- Jerry Bridges
