Be the kind of woman who befriends strangers.
There is this awesome quote that I stumbled upon recently, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear, and the blind can see.” (Mark Twain)
We have all been strangers at one point: the first day of a new job, first day in a new class, or even in the youth camp you decided to attend even though you were still newbie in the church’s youth group! Do you remember the awesome feeling when someone approached you and said “Hi,” or when they even went further and asked to know your name and whether there was anything they could do to help?
That is how Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, in the Bible was. She was always showing kindness, doing good and helping the poor. She had such a great impact on the people around her that when she became sick and sadly died, the people she selflessly served had to call Apostle Peter to come and pray so she would be raised back to life.
Dear sister, may you desire to be a Tabitha in your community.
May you desire to be a selfless, friendly, and kind soul, especially to strangers. Often, strangers just need one person to show them kindness, and it takes them a long way in opening up and being a blessing to the community.
Kindness is such a beautiful thing, and it always goes a long way.
Purposely show kindness to all, known or stranger, and watch God use you to literally change someone’s life! You never know, you might actually be showing kindness to an angel without even knowing it. (Hebrews 3:12)
Like Tabitha, may we be known for our kindness and grace because kindness really is a universal language.
