Over the past weeks we have been considering kindness as a practice. Love is actioned in kindness and kindness teaches us to love. Jesus walks with us in every circumstance and his abiding with us means that we carry his presence into every situation good or bad; we carry hope. We have to trust love and that in our weakness we are fully known yet Jesus chooses to work in and through us. It’s alright to not understand. It is alright to fail. If we practise kindness, God’s promise is, he knows us and he will reveal to us the way of truth, never abandoning us or deserting us.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NRSV
