"No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." - Aesop

I didn't know it was Random Acts of Kindness week until I saw this at Yahoo. But if you want a list of random acts you can do, go to the Good deed ideas page of the SSSSH(Secret Society of Serendipitous Service to Hal). The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation - inspiring people to practice kindness. Servant Evangelism theme is "Small Things Done with Great Love Will Change the World", "showing God's love in practical ways. Kindness builds the bridge for the person to receive a touch of love from God. It's simple, practical, effective, inexpensive and fun!

"Deeds of kindness are equal in weight to all the commandments." Author:The Talmud

Jeus said: But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”

Paul wrote thatKindness is a fruit of the spirit.
