World Kindness Day – Yes, there is a day set aside for kindness. But truthfully, we should celebrate kindness everyday.
World Kindness Day
This day is also known as Random Acts of Kindness Day. Held annually on November 13th. World Kindness Day started in 1998 by a coalition of nations kindness NGOs (Non-Governmental Organization). According to Gulf News, “it is a day that encourages individuals to overlook boundaries, race and religion.”
On this day people will do kind things for others. Maybe a pay it forward. Others may donate or give things to people on this day. However, we should be showing kindness to people everyday. As a Christian Kindness should show in you. As it is part of the fruit of the spirit.
A new trend to help spread kindness is the Kindness Rock movement. The point is to paint and rock and hide it for others to find. They can keep it or they can re-hide it. Learn more below.
Did you know one of the Points of the Boy Scout Law is A Scout is Kind. I pointed this one out in my blog on The Scout Law – A Christian Point of View.
