“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck.” Proverbs 3:3
Religion can be either good or bad, depending on how we make use of it. Absolutism, legalism, intolerance, violence, and fanaticism are vices of a bad religion. Humility, wisdom, tolerance, peace and compassion are virtues of a good religion. The Bible tells us that kindness and truth are essential qualities of believers of God. Trustworthy and kind people are followers of Christ, regardless of their religions or none thereof. Binding kindness and truth around our neck is better than binding gemstones around our neck.
Dear Lord, people adorn themselves with pearls and emeralds around their neck. Help us to remember that kindness and truth are more valuable than gold and silver. Amen.
1. The measure of a man is not how great his faith is but how great his love is.
2. Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. – Mother Teresa
3. Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger
you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him. - Epictetus
