Life Worth Living

(Genesis 2 ) “Then the Lord God formed man of the dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” 


Out the Kindness of God’s heart, man was created and given life.  It was out of the kindness of God’s heart that He created the woman for the man.  

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. -Aesop (620 BC-560 BC) 

(2 Peter 1:7) “and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love”. 

  Kindness is being considerate or being helpful. It is a quality, a characteristic of an individual.  It is a characteristic of God, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,” (Galatians 5:22). 

Chester Shuler has written the following lines:

If we knew but half the troubles

That our neighbor has to bear,

If we knew what caused those furrows

On his brow and kept them there,

We should surely try to cheer him

In some kindly, helpful way,

And there’d be a lot more sunshine

In the lives of both today.

If we knew whose feet were standing

Close beside the narrow stream,

If we knew whose eyes could close soon

In the sleep that has no dream,

Then perhaps we’d be more tender,

Lighter judge, more kindly speak—

Oh, why not act as though we knew it –

For life’s cords so quickly break.
