Everybody is kinder when we feel kindly ourselves. (Henry Holsinger, 19th-20th century church leader)

He continued, “Our neighbors become more accommodating when we run over with courtesy toward them.” In a world that seems to lack kindness, it’s encouraging to see a billboard that says, “You can be anything you want; Be kind.” Holsinger’s quoting of hymn writer, John H. McNaughton is appropriate: “There is beauty all around when there’s love at home.”

Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body (Proverbs 16:24).
