Right now is a tense time for our country and our world. People are angry, hurt, confused, fed up, and 24f4701439373f95b9631f4a8a6d7bd5because of these emotions their attitudes can become tainted. I have witnessed how nasty people can become with their words and actions through the news and on social media, and I have a reminder for all of you out there: even if we disagree about everything, we can still be kind to each other.

Kindness is a courtesy we should all show each other. Being kind is so important during these times. Kindness can mean more to someone than you know. They may be having a terrible day, and your kind word or actions can change their whole outlook. Also, as a Christian, I find that my kindness acts as a witness of my faith. People notice when you are kind, and they ask how you can be that way even when it would be so much easier to be mean or rude. Jesus called us to be kind and be a witness to the world of His love.

Be kind, even on your bad days. You never know who may be watching you and may be impacted by your actions.

XOXO, Chels

Life Lessons from Proverbs 3:3

It is so easy to get caught up in the troubles of this world. It is easy to become angry, irritable, sarcastic, and all kinds of other negative emotions. Yet, Proverbs 3:3 says “ Do not let kindness and truth leave you.”

When I read this verse I immediately think “How am I treating people around me? Am I treating them with kindness? Am I speaking the truth?” As a Christian, it is really important for me to embody everything this verse says. Why? A couple of reasons. The first is proverbsife because God’s word tells me to. It tells me to be kind and to tell the truth, because those are two things that God wants His followers to represent. The second reason it is important for me to do what this verse says is because I am a Christian, therefore people look to me and watch how I act. They look to me to see how I live and what I stand for. I set an example for others, and my actions can either bring honor and glory to God, or they can dishonor and shame Him. My goal is to bring glory to God in everything I do, which means being kind to others, even when it is not easy, and to speak truth.

Don’t let kindness and truth escape you, because not only do these two attributes make you a more likeable, nice person, they also bring glory to God.

Real Life Application: Be Nice to Everyone

When I was little, my parents would always remind me: be nice to EVERYONE.  Still to this day they remind me.  I used to have trouble understanding this, “Why should I be nice to someone that treats me awful?  I’ll never have to see them again once I leave this school or quit this job”; but as I started growing up and maturing…it all made sense.Chelsea Crockett- character

Life has a funny way of working out.  Picture this.  Remember that boy that used to pick on you?  Or that nerd you used to make fun of?  Rewind 15 years later.  He’s your boss at your new job!  He’s turned his life around, is good to others, and has a Godly heart.  The last impression you made on your new boss was not a good one!  Don’t you wish you would have been nicer back in the day?

You always run the risk of running into your past.  Why not make it a good one?  If someone is mean to you…pray for them.  If someone is picking on you, don’t retaliate, but instead keep your head up.  See someone getting picked on?  Befriend them!  While you don’t have to be best friends with the people that treat you badly, it’s always important to be the bigger person.  Be nice…to EVERYONE.

XOXO,
