Importance of Kindness

Larry Burkett, a teacher and writer regarding financial matters from a Christian perspective, states, “The evidence of our commitment to God’s way will be seen in our concern for others.”  Genuine concern for the welfare of other people indicates authentic kindness, which is a result of having agape love (the purest, deepest kind of […]
