My Aunt told me that when I was a little girl, I used to get mad and call people “dummies.” I know…quite the charmer! They tried to get me to be nicer and call people “sweeties,” instead. She said one day, I got really mad at someone and yelled, “SWEETIE” in a really ugly tone! I’m sure there’s a lesson in there somewhere (wink, wink)!
Being a “Sweetie” is kind of important. One of the most important jobs that we will ever have on this earth is telling people the Good News about Jesus! How do we do that? By being kind!
The Bible says in Romans 2:4 (AMP 2nd half of the verse), “Are you [actually] unaware or ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness leads you to repentance [that is, to change your inner self, your old way of thinking—seek His purpose for your life]?”
John 3:17 (NKJV) “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
If we’re truly going to impact the world, then we have to see people the way God sees people! He loved them so much that He gave them His most precious gift. That’s Love!
