Lesson: The power of kindness

George Albert Smith, Lesson 21,
The power of kindness

Kristen Hinchman did a great job at reminding us of the power of kindness. Read the whole lesson is you get a chance. Here are a few ideas I took away.

Kindness is not always what we do, but the manner in which we do it.

Kindness is the absence of criticism and judgement.

Kindness changes lives.

Kindness changes the atmosphere in our homes.

Kindness can bind up hidden wounds in those around us.

Kindness takes time and patience.

Kindness is giving sincere praise to those around us.

Kindness can lead our children from their mistakes and invite them to listen to counsel.

President Smith:
I pray that the love of the gospel of our Lord will burn in our souls and enrich our lives, that it will cause husbands to be kinder to wives, and wives to be kinder to husbands, parents to children, and children to parents because of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is a gospel of love and kindness.
Thanks for a great lesson, Kristen.
