Simple Wisdom Tip #46: Take Time to Be Kind

In this fast-paced world, we all move a mile a minute and often deal with people quickly and not always thoughtfully.  As Stephen Covey often said and wrote, “Be efficient with things but be effective with people.”  Showing kindness to everyone with whom we meet and work is the right thing to do but it is also a smart thing to do – for us.  Look no further than the Proverbs (11:17) – “When you’re kind to others, you help yourself.”  Taking an extra few minutes to treat people kindly will pay dividends.  Give it a try and see what happens.
