The Spark of Kindness

Listen to the Message
 
Matthew 7:12
 
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 
 
It’s more about how we can apply this principle to our daily lives. 
 
“The Mt. Everest Of Ethics”
 
You can control the decisions you make. 
 
1. Make it your aim to be intentionally considerate. 
  • What is hateful to yourself, do to no other. 
  • We shouldn’t speak to others in a way that we wouldn’t want to be spoken to. 
  • It’s simple, but it’s not easy.
  • Philippians 2:4
  • Philippians 4:5
2. Make it your aim to take the initiative in being kind. 
  • Look for opportunities to treat others in the way you most want to be treated. 
  • Consider listening, rather than interrupting. 
  • It’s that you love them as you love yourself. 
  • In a spirit of love, compassion, and patience. 
  • I need to be willing to make the first move. 
  • If you were judged, choose understanding
  • Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. 
  • Vow to be better than what broke you — to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain. 
3. Make it your aim to want the best for others. 
  • “Let the honor of the friend be as dear unto these as thine own.”
  • Proverbs 14:30
  • 1 Corinthians 13:4
  • Lord bless them more than you bless me.
  • You truly want the best for others, and at every opportunity you give your best to others. 
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
