Working on indirect kindness

I mentioned the idea of indirect kindness which is practicing kindness not only in person, but in your thoughts and speech when that person is not present. Now that I'm aware of this, I'm finding its harder than I thought.

A few days ago someone shared some information with me about a co-worker. It wasn't bad per se, but they would not have said it if that person was present. I found myself, without thinking, wanting to tell someone else. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of this little experiment in indirect kindness that I agreed to. So, I kept it to myself, but the next day I almost told someone again. This is going to take some work.

Imaging what life would be like if we get series about even the smallest kingdom commands, like "Be kind, one to another" (Eph 4:32). Those small things become big things when they draw us close to Christ and give us the ability to know him in a new way. They become a big deal when they teach us how to love people better and see them more like God sees them. How amazing are the plans God has for us? What a blessing it is to hear his voice and walk in his ways!
