1 Corthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful, It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.

Love is kind.  There are other words for kind: nice, polite, thoughtful.  Picture standing in a long line at a checkout with a cart full.  The line moved slow. Finally there is only one more before our turn.  We notice someone comes up behind us with only one or two items.  We have a choice to make.  How about sitting in a line of traffic?  Someone wants in our lane.  We have a choice to make.  How often do we use the words “thank you?”.  Sometimes we are so task oriented and in such a rush we forget our purpose in living.  Our question is are we willing to slow down and pass God’s love in the form of kindness?  The choice is always ours to make.
