I have a dear friend named Steve Sjogren. He wrote a book called Conspiracy of Kindness. It was because of his passion for being kind to his community that a significant church was planted in the Cincinnati Ohio area. I hope that as you read these Bible verses about kindness that you too will catch a vision for what kindness can do to change our world.

It is the goodness of God that brings people to repentance. Our job as Spirit-filled Christians is to be the examples of kindness by being kind to all kinds of people, including those that are not very easy to be kind to.

Final Thoughts About Examples Of Kindness In The Bible

As you can see. God is the source of kindness. It is His kindness that we have been favored with. It flows from Him and what He has done.

The way we can be kind and tenderhearted towards one another is to take on the character and nature of God, and that character and nature is kindness.

If you are struggling with being kind, it is because you do not see God as a kind God. It is a flaw in how you perceive God to be.

So take a moment. Reflect on what is kindness in the Bible and let God change your heart from the inside out.
