KINDNESS OVER ARROGANCE


By:  F. Kong


I will choose to be kind.

I will be kind to the poor because they are alone. I will be kind to the rich because they are afraid. Today the richer you are, the more worried you become. I will also be kind to the unkind because that was how God treated me. I’ve never been very kind to God, yet He continues to love me. So what gives me the right to be unkind to others?

I will submit to those above me in rank and those below, I will respect and honor.

I will choose servanthood. Service gives me a kind of joy money can’t buy.

I need to remind myself that I may be efficient and highly skilled but this does not give me the license to be arrogant.

I will choose to help those who need help and at the same time refrain from lifting myself up by looking down on them.

In the bathroom, an accountant, a lawyer and a farmer were standing side-by-side using the urinal.

The accountant finished, zipped up and started washing and literally scrubbing his hands … clear up to his elbows … he used about 20 paper towels before he finished.

He turned to the other two men and commented, “I graduated from Harvard and they taught us to be sanitary.”

The lawyer finished, zipped up and quickly wet the tips of his fingers, grabbed one paper towel and commented, “I graduated from the University of Texas with a Law degree and they taught us to be environmentally conscious.”

The farmer zipped up and as he was walking out the door said, “I graduated from the University of Minnesota. They taught us not to pee on our hands.”
