These are unprecedented times, that is certain. As our country continues to fight against racism and the continuation of racist acts taking place, as we continue to wear masks/social distance and try to keep everyone safe from COVID-19, as churches and business and restaurants are in the process of re-opening their doors for the first time in over three months, the world around us is experiencing frustrations, anger, and confusion in ways many of us have never seen before.
Jesus states in John 16:33 that, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Ephesians 4:32 also urges us to, “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
Friends, during these days, I urge you to seek to give the kindness and love that God has given you. Below you’ll find our “30 Days of Kindness”, as part of our Live Backwards movement:
These COVID-19 approved acts of kindness are meant to challenge you to make the world around you a kinder, more loving, more Christ-like place. For the next 30 days, I challenge you to be intentional about kindness. To live backwards – knowing that change starts with you and in your home.
I am praying for you all and for our country fervently. Please feel free to comment any prayer requests you may have, as well as any other acts of kindness that we should add to our list.
