KINDNESS

At a Special Olympic Event, some time ago, 9 special athletes were competing in a 100-yard dash. As the starting pistol shot and the race started, one runner tripped and fell to the ground, crying out loud in pain. One runner, a girl, stopped, turned back to him, kissed his cheek and said, “There, that will make you feel better!”  One by one, each of the runners went back to help the fallen runner, together, they locked arms and carried him from the track.

The crowd, overcome with emotion from what they were witnessing, cheered and gave a 10-minute standing ovation.

While each of these athletes would have loved the thrill of winning the race, their sense of kindness and teamwork lead them to act selflessly.

In our daily lives, we don’t see acts of kindness like this often enough. Today, I would like to encourage each of you to do what you can to make someone else’s day brighter – the effect that it will have on your life and other’s is profound.

“Love suffereth long, and is kind” (1 Cor. 13:4) and “be ye kind one to another” (Eph. 4:32).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
