Mahatma Gandhi was planning to travel by train one day and, because he and a companion were running late, he got on board just in time, but one of Gandhi’s sandals fell off and landed beside the track. They stood there watching his sandal go off in the distance, when Gandhi did a strange thing. He reached down and removed his other sandal and threw it along the track, where it landed beside the other sandal. His friend was puzzled by this rather odd behavior and asked why he had done it. Gandhi said: “One sandal is no good to me. But perhaps a poor person will come along, discover both sandals, and be happy that he now has shoes”. This is kindness — and a natural part of Mahatma Gandhi’s life. Instead of worrying about his loss, he thought of the poor beggar discovering a complete pair of shoes.

What is the best example of kindness we can think of? The Bible says that God is the essence of kindness. The psalmist in Psalm 63:3 wrote, “Your love and kindness are better than life itself”. In Psalm 107:1 (TLB) he says, “Say thank you to the Lord for being so good, for always being so loving and kind”. Another verse says, “Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; His loving kindness continues forever” (Psalm 136:1 TLB).

It seems a common theme that runs through much of the Bible, a message of praise for the qualities of God’s kindness, mercy — a God who is slow to get angry, full of love and compassion. Here’s another verse: “The Lord is fair in everything he does and full of kindness. He is close to all who call on him sincerely” (Psalm 145:17-18 TLB).
