Love Dare Day 2

Love is Kind
"Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you." -Ephesians 4:32
Love is an action, not a feeling. There are 4 parts to kindness.
1.Gentleness. Speak the truth in love. Be sensitive and forgiving.
2. Helpfulness. Always put the other first, making sure their needs are met before your own. Always.
3. Willingness. Always listen. Be agreeable. "A kind husband ends thousands of prospective arguments by his willingness to listen first rather than demand his way."
4. Initiative. Always take the first step...whether it's apologizing, or doing something without being asked. Never wait on the other person to get things done or say, "I'm sorry."
Always be kind, even when there seems to be no reward. Don't do something kind in hopes of getting something in return. Do it because it's right.
Today's Dare:
Do at least one unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.
