How do we take the lowly place when the one your trying to reach is at a low place in desperate need of a friend. This is a word used so loosely when it’s depth is not measurable. Kindness maybe best demonstrated when you believe the other is not worthy of it. Giving such kindness may be difficult to teach if our hearts are not pure. In order to teach it to a child we have to demonstrate it to, and for our children.
How do we hold nothing against another. The ability to not hold Ill will towards another is not an easy thing to do on your own. This is one of the many reasons we need our one and only savior Jesus. Read the demonstration of kindness David showed to the house of Saul. 2 Samuel 9:1 Truly honoring someone who saw him as an enemy at one point.
“One day David asked, “Is anyone in Saul’s family still alive—anyone to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” He summoned a man named Ziba, who had been one of Saul’s servants. “Are you Ziba?” the king asked. “Yes sir, I am,” Ziba replied. The king then asked him, “Is anyone still alive from Saul’s family? If so, I want to show God’s kindness to them.” Ziba replied, “Yes, one of Jonathan’s sons is still alive.
