Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
(Romans 2:4 NKJV)
The Bible says the lovingkindness of the Lord leads to repentance. Through repentance, we are encouraged to think about our ways and turn our feet back to Jesus and God's ways. We are encouraged to think about God's lovingkindness in our lives. His favor, His love, and His grace towards us. It helps us focus more on our blessings and less on our problems!
God’s lovingkindness is not just for you to feel better. God saved you to be better.
God’s lovingkindness should motivate us to serve Him with due diligence. We belong to the kind culture, not the cancel culture. We are to rise and be the army of God in our homes, workplaces, and communities! In a toxic culture, where crime, corruption, greed, and hate are rampant-YOU have the power to create change!
for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm. (Jonah 4:2 NKJV)
God is so kind to us. He lavishly pours His lovingkindness upon us, and we can be used as His vessels to pour out His lovingkindness to those around us. This is what God truly desires from us! Be kind because it is the witness that wins over the world!
