Be kind

Simple things, great ripple effect

In a world so dry

As a desert takes in the rain

Show mercy and kindness

Execute justice

Be compassionate and be tender

To the widow

To the fatherless

To the foreigner

Be kind and sincere

This is what requires of the Lord requires of me

And He promises me

A heart so soft that I can feel His heartbeat

Ears so sharp that I can hear His heartbeat

Eye sight so good that I can  see His heart

Simple things, great ripple effect

 

Be kind

Kind?

Yes kind

But I must fight for myself

I must accomplish, accomplish, accomplish

The Lord says show mercy be kind and just

But I will be a “softie!”

Absolutely! Your heart will be soft

So soft that you will hear His heart beat

And know His desire that men accept His son Jesus

That they may be saved from destruction.

Be kind love truth and peace.

 

Zechariah 7:8-11

Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, “Thus has the Lord of hosts said, ‘Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion, to each other; and do not oppress or exploit the widow or the fatherless, the stranger or the poor; and do not devise or even imagine evil in your hearts against one another.’  But they refused to listen and pay attention and turned a stubborn shoulder [stiffening themselves in resistance] and stopped up their ears.  They made their hearts [hard] like flint, so that they could not hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Therefore great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.
