Yesterday, I read an article “Lasting Relationships Rely on 2 Traits”. I’ve provided the link if you want to read the article, but the trait that was most relevant to me was “kindness.” The article suggested.. if we think of “kindness” as a muscle – as something we need to use and strengthen constantly …it will grow just like muscle does. The article was a good reminder to me I need to practice(exercise) kindness.
The proverb below from my morning devotional reminded me of this article. Proverbs 3:3 “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck..”
May “kindness” grow in me. I’ve been learning that with my faith in Jesus not myself, I’m getting much better in the kindness department. Still have plenty of kindness muscles to strengthen.

3 My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
- Proverbs 3:6 Or will direct your paths
