BE KIND-REWIND:Remember that old phrase? It's seems antiquated, doesn't it? It was only a few short years ago when that phrase was posted on videos we picked up at the video store. The idea was to kindly rewind the tape prior to returning so the store or the next customer to rent the video didn't have to do it.
Today we have CD's, DVD's-DVR's and the video tape is a thing of the past.
It seems to me that we should re-work that phrase and use it once again in our lives.
REWIND-BE KIND is the perfect makeover for the old saying.
Too often we react unkindly to others. Harsh words, nasty thoughts, dirty looks are all ways that we show dislike or contempt towards another person.
Instead of re-acting, I think we should re-wind. In other words, rewind those negative thoughts, harsh words before they come out of our mouths. Once rewound, think of a better way to respond. A little kindness goes a long, long way.
Remember, someone may need to rewind for you too.
Colossians 3:12 "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."
