What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead. (Romans 7:7-8, NIV)

31 Days of Kindness…what a great idea – or was it?  Like you, for the last nine days I’ve woken up in the morning and prayed: “Lord, show me who to be kind to…and how.”  He has and it has been fun.  BUT…

A few weeks ago I defined kindness: “A behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others.” I’ve got the behavior part down…now God’s working on my heart.

I want to hear the stories of what God is doing through you!  Let me know…
