A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve ~ Joseph  Joubert

I came across this quote a few days ago. At first I really liked it, but the more I considered it,the more I realised how inaccurate this statement is.

Everyone deserves love and kindness, no matter what they may have done in their past. God expects us to be kind to everyone, even those who seem unlovable!

Proverbs 3:3-4 (NLT)

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.

If we show kindness to others, we will get our reward in heaven, because we will have done God’s will, so show kindness to everyone simply because they deserve it!
