The Ministry of Kindness
Kindness is one of God’s best gifts to the world.
It drives gloom and darkness from souls.
It puts hope into fainting hearts
It sweetens sorrow. It lessens pain
It discovers unsuspected beauties of human character.
It calls forth a response from all that is best in souls.
It purifies, glorifies, ennobles all that it touches.
It opens the flood-gates of children’s laughter.
It gathers the tears of repentant love.
It lightens the burden of weariness.
It stops the torrent of angry passion.
It takes the sting from failure.
It enkindles courageous ambition.
It lifts the unfortunate.
It leads back the wayward.
It walks in the steps of Our Higher Power.
