BE KIND 576
Wrote T. H. Thompson, "Be kind."
"Remember, everyone you meet
is fighting a great battle."
It is very easy for each of us
to visualize ourselves as though
we were fighting an individualized
battle, all alone.
If we could only see that "the battle
is the Lord's," and we are simply
his watchmen on the towers of ti
If one family is broken by the slashing
sword of divorce, do we not all bleed?
If one of our comrades is fallen mortally
wounded from a battle with sin, should
we not all mourn, and then offer healing
where we can?
If one of God's warriors is struggling to
stay in the fight, should we not pray
for him to have renewed courage
and more spiritual strength?
We are all in this battle together.
The battle is extremely difficult at times.
So, let us strive to be kind, to one another.
