In the harshness of the twenty-first century world, the power behind a kind word gives the nature of leadership the greatness God desires.
The value of speaking with kindness benefits every level of a leader’s influence. When a word is spoken with kindness several results occur.
The desire to achieve what benefits others is demonstrated as a priority.
The value or worth of the individual is raised to a level of importance for both people involved.
The biblical expression of the fruit of the Spirit testifies to the development of Christlike qualities.
The goal of unity among brethren is exemplified as Christians strive to serve one another.
The example of Christ’s sacrifice is characterized by the sacrificial actions of His disciples.
The outreach to a world of nonChristians is built upon a foundation of love reflecting the nature of God.
More could be said about the power of a kind word. Kindness requires us to get our personal agendas, preconceived ideas, desires, and motivations out of the way so our Christian light can be displayed and God glorified.
