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.

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.”

The closer the bucket gets to being full, the larger the crowd grows beneath in anticipation—children and adults alike wait for the outpouring. Then SUDDENLY the bucket tips and a great flood of refreshment crashes down on all below!
In the Book of Revelation, the Bible describes golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 5:8). In other words, the prayers of God's people collectively fill heavenly bowls with sweet aroma, much like the burnt offerings did in days of old. In Revelation 8, we discover what these bowls are used for:
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter w…
