Devotion: God is Our Source

"a kind word cheers him up." ~ Proverbs 12:25

As I was thinking on kindness, I remembered a certain rubber stamping website I visit frequently in which members enjoy surprising others with RAKS (random acts of kindness). RAKS usually contain a beautifully decorated card and sometimes, small gifts such as sample-sized artist supplies. It gives the RAK-giver joy to share a bit of cheer with someone. It's kinda like sharing a cup of cold water with the thirsty (Mt. 10:42). I know as I've been on the receiving end a time or two!

Prayer: Daddy, I need your help today. I don't come by kindness naturally and I know you delight in it. When I moan and groan about the "exercise clothes" I must put on to follow you, gently remind me that I'm yours, dearly loved. Season my words today with kindness to make them a reflection of you. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Today's Tip:
“Lighthearted color and upbeat, positive imagery emphasize the supportive writing of the Religious card.” ~ Eva Szela.

  1. Thank you so much for this post! I really like jumping from one blog to another - I got here from the place you sent me to look at what the KC Writer said about religious knowledge today. I almost replied myself. Thanks for your reply! I read your devotion and am so glad YOU are YOU! : )
