Consider the command in Ephesians 4:32 to be kind to one another, tenderhearted, and forgiving. When we carry resentment in our hearts, it’s like a little pocket of poison that pulls down our personalities and sours our spirits. But when we’re kind and pleasant, it lightens our burdens and brightens our days-not to mention what it does for others.
God knows how we best function-He created us-and He’s an expert on the care of the soul. Obedience not only glorifies Him, it blesses our lives.
Commentary from David Jeremiah’s Pathways Devotional, May 10.
