“And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:32‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Good morning, DearHeart,

A friend of mine, Miss Ginny, retired recently. She has boundless energy and an exceptional knack for finding the good in every situation and every person. One day, we were talking about choices people make about how they treat others, she said, “I like nice.”

I like nice.

If I had a dime for every time that simple phrase ran through my mind now! Simple. Profound. Lasting effects. 

God’s Word pleads “be kind”. Be a relationship that helps, not hurts. Christ in the center of your circle of friends surrounds you and me with One who is admired, One you are proud to reflect. He makes all relationships brighter simply by being there. Life is too short to spend your hours with those who suck the nice-ness and kindness out of you. When you choose to free or at least limit yourself from negative and bitter types, you free yourself up to shine brighter for your Creator. 

When His kindness saturates you, you magnetically draw others to Him. The measure of His presence is like a beacon that attracts reality. . . love attracts love. . . generosity creates a generous response. Likewise, if you choose a bitter edge – your bitterness will gain momentum, and you will drown there. 

What we focus on expands, every single time. As you focus on life-affirming Christ, you will reap what you sow. I like nice.

Wake up.

Be choosey.

Go.
