The Human Touch of Kindness

He who despises his neighbor sins, but he who has mercy on the poor, happy is he. Proverbs 14:21
Read: Matthew 25:34-40
Mamie Adams always went to a branch post office in her town because the postal employees there were friendly. She went there to buy stamps just before Christmas one year, and the lines were particularly long. Someone pointed out that there was no need to wait in line because there was a stamp machine in the lobby. "I know," said Mamie, "but the machine won't ask me about my arthritis."

The human touch of kindness is our species' distinguishing mark and something many go without due to all of the world's technological advances. Just like Mamie, many people would rather sacrifice the modern-day convenience of a machine in order to receive a friendly greeting from another living, breathing human being. Jesus understood the importance of kindness and took great care in being kind to everyone, especially the downtrodden and unsaved. He knew this was the key to opening the hearts of those who otherwise might never respond to the love of Christ.

Make it your goal to be kind to everyone; you never know who might be in need of the human touch of kindness.

It is the duty of every Christian to be Christ to his neighbor. ~ Martin Luther
