But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. – Titus 3:4-5
The people who brighten our days show us merciful kindness by accepting us as we are, forgiving us when we are wrong, celebrating our accomplishments, and caring for us enough to tell us when we are making unhealthy decisions. These precious people show us kindness not because we deserve it, but because they love us. Jesus offers us kindness not because we are always good but because Jesus loves us. Our relationship with Jesus makes it possible for us to offer kindness not because we think others deserve it, but because we love them with the unconditional love of Jesus, who offers kindness to us and to everyone.

Prayer Of Saint Francis 

Lord, make me and instrument of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let me bring love;

Where there is injury pardon;

Where there is doubt faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy;

And all for they mercy’s sake.

O divine Master, grant that I many not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

To be understood as to understand;

To be loved as to love;

For it is giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
