”He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins.”  [Luke 21:2]

We often read the story of the widow and her two copper coins as a lesson on giving but its so much more—it’s a huge lesson in the impact of one small act of kindness.

In this world of global change kindness is often lost in the fast pace, grab what you can society.  Fearful of unknown results of change and what will tomorrow bring causes kindness and respect for others to fly out of the window.

It was a time of great change for King David—yet as he stood in the aftermath of war his thoughts went to others saying, ”Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness…”  [2 Samuel 9:1]

In the movie Evans Almighty the new Senator was told—“the way to change the world is through one act of random kindness at a time”—acronym for ARK it alludes to kindness as a structure that protects those on board from the storms of life.

Kindness according to 2 Peter 1:7 is developed as you ‘add’ or make an intentional goal to show brotherly kindness and in so doing change will bear the fruit of productivity. Kindness is love doing little things, things that seem scarcely worth doing, and yet which mean much to those for whom they are wrought.

Wherever there is a human being there is an opportunity for kindness, it is the language that the deaf can hear and the dumb can understand.
