Kindness is evidence of maturity, love, and respect for God.A Sidebar Accompanying "Kindness Begins at Home" The Greek word chrestos, usually translated "kindness", originally meant "useful, good, suitable" (cf. Lk. 5:39; Mt. 11:30), later broadening to include moral excellence, genuine goodness of heart (cf. Rom. 3:12; 1 Cor. 15:33; Gal 5:22). Emperors and politicians liked to have this word engraved next to their name in public inscriptions. It sounded good for public consumption. In the Bible, however, kindness is more than fluff. New Testament usage focuses on four facets of kindness: friendliness, compassion, helpfulness, and forbearance.
