Too Busy To Be Kind

The chief enemy to kindness is busyness. We have our priorities, our jobs, our duties, our responsibilities…we’re too busy. But if we are too busy to be kind, we are too busy. The Bible says: “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10).

Do you remember the story of the Good Samaritan? In Luke chapter 10, our Lord tells the story of a man on a journey who stopped to help a bruised and bleeding man on the side of the road.

He didn’t make excuses because he was on a journey and too busy to stop. He didn’t say it was too dangerous to help a stranger. He didn’t say it was none of his business. Right when he saw him, he didn’t hesitate. He did what he could do. It was a golden moment – and he took it.

All around us are people who are bruised and bleeding. Some are bleeding financially, some emotionally, and some spiritually. And they need you to say, “This is a golden opportunity to help someone, and I’m going to take it right now.”

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
