Scriptures on Kindness

The Bible is very clear that we are to be kind to everyone, even if they are unkind to us. Why? Because even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. We don't deserve His kindness, yet He is kind to us anyway because He loves us. We pray that these scriptures will encourage you and we pray Psalm 67:1 over you, that God will be gracious and kind-hearted to you, the He will bless you, and His face will shine with favor on you!

Blessed For Being Kind 

Ruth 2:12 (AMP)

"May the Lord repay you for your kindness, and may your reward be full from the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge.”

Matthew 5:5 (AMP)

“Blessed [inwardly peaceful, spiritually secure, worthy of respect] are the gentle [the kind-hearted, the sweet-spirited, the self-controlled], for they will inherit the earth."

Matthew 6:2 (AMP)

“So whenever you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not blow a trumpet before you [to advertise it], as the hypocrites do [like actors acting out a role] in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored and recognized and praised by men. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they [already] have their reward in full."

Romans 2:4 (AMP)

Or do you have no regard for the wealth of His kindness and tolerance and patience [in withholding His wrath]? Are you [actually] unaware or ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness leads you to repentance [that is, to change your inner self, your old way of thinking—seek His purpose for your life]?

Romans 11:22 (AMP)

Titus 3:3-5 (AMP)

For we too once were foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various sinful desires and pleasures, spending and wasting our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the goodness and kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared [in human form as the Man, Jesus Christ], He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we have done, but because of His own compassion and mercy, by the cleansing of the new birth (spiritual transformation, regeneration) and renewing by the Holy Spirit.
