Kindness That Lasts a Lifetime, By Lauren L.

Kindness That Lasts a Lifetime

By Lauren L.

Kindness that lasts a lifetime ....and anger that lasts only a moment.. who can give us that ...? God can!!

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime, weeping may remain for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Psalm 30:5

Its so hard to possibly imagine that someone’s kindness towards us could possibly last a lifetime ...but that is the way God’s kindness towards us is. 
We live in a world of sin; we do so many things wrong, and without a doubt we make God sad and hurt him, because he made the world so perfect and beautiful, but we had to ruin it with all our selfishness and bad ways.
Not one of us can say we are perfect or live a sin free life because that is not true! No one is perfect except from God. I have made so many mistakes in life..And will continue to do so, no matter how hard I try not to. But God is so loving to us that even when we really mess up in life and sin, his anger only lasts a moment.
When someone hurts or lets me down, I tend to be sad and angry for more than a moment. But God, our perfect father, his anger lasts only a moment, and very soon turns to kindness and love for us!
So we should not be afraid to ask God for forgiveness and admit our sin, because no matter what we ever say or do God couldn’t give up on us, even if he tried.
He loves us so much that he will never stop doing good for us. He will bless us all our lives and his kindness will make our lives better than we could imagine, because every good and perfect gift is from God’s hand.
So here’s our prayer:
Dear Lord...
We thank you for your endless mercy and love towards us, that no matter what we ever say or do you always and always will love and care for us. I thank you for all the good and perfect gifts you have blessed us with. I pray that even when someone hurts us or lets us down that our anger will last only a moment, and that we will help and be kind to people all of our lives, because this is the way you treat us, so please help us treat others in the same loving, compassionate way you treat everyone.
We love you Lord.
