Try A Little Kindness

Music HighwayIn my previous post, I shared a Facebook post from a friend about the kindness shown by a taxi driver to an elderly lady who knew she had only days to live. With just a small exertion  of patience, this man’s outlook on life changed from that day forward.

We will never know what is inside a person’s heart and what stresses he is going through. This is the all the reason why we, especially Christians, should love our neighbor as God gives us the ability.

The video song below is the type of song we Christians gladly always sing regarding our approach toward our fellow man. It was the kind of song sung by Christ, our Lord, as He dealt with others while on earth.

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he’s sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Well just stop and stay you’re going the wrong way

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou got to try a little kindness
Show a little kindness
Shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on their narrow-minded streets

Don’t you walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Is going to help someone along life’s way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on their narrow-minded streets

Well you got to try a little kindness
Show a little kindness
Shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on their narrow-minded streets
Of narrow-minded people on their narrow-minded streets
