The Gift of Kindness:
“Jacob’s Spring” was there. Jesus, tired with his journey, sat down beside it, just as he was. The time was about midday. Presently, a Samaritan woman arrived to draw some water. “Please give me a drink,” Jesus said to her, for his disciples had gone away to the town to buy food. John 4:6-8
When we think of an act of kindness we often think of giving, but often kindness is more about the act of sharing. When we ask for help we are telling someone that they have importance and value. How surprised the woman was that day at Jesus asking for a drink. His moment of kindness unlocked her heart to Him. There is no greater gift we may give someone than a simple kindness that says to them, I have time for you and you matter to me!
