ife is always in motion and has a way of catching up. Be careful how you treat people. What you do to others has a funny way of coming back to you. Everything comes full circle. It doesn't matter what it looks like now. Good people have better things coming and the wickedness of the wicked will definitely catch up with them. What goes around will come around. Man sees the now but God knows the future. Man judge what you show but God knows your heart. Life is like an echo, what you send out comes back to you. Tread cautiously!

There was this story of a man, who had an accident and was rushed to the hospital. The nurse on duty was supposed to close at 8.00 p.m. For the simple reason that the man who had an accident was brought to that hospital at about 8.00 p.m. the nurse refused to attend to him. She chose instead to paint her lips and change her clothes. The fact that the situation was an emergency one did nothing to change the heart of the lady. All pleas to make her change her mind fell on deaf ears. She insisted on going home. She went home only to discover that her husband was not at home. By the time she ran around to know where her husband was, she found out that her husband was the injured man to whom she refused to give the necessary service the previous night. The man died thereafter. Now if I may ask you this question, was the devil responsible for the woman's affliction?

If only she knew that the life she could have saved was her husband's. You know some times it may not be convenient but in that discomfort lies the answers you are looking for. Kindness is one of the fruit of the Spirit. It is not expected for you to be in the best of mood before you show kindness to someone. The seed of kindness you are sowing today will come back to you either directly or indirectly. In this world of greed and selfishness, make up your mind to touch the lives of others; who knows, you may be saving your own life or the life of someone close to you.

Always be willing to offer a helping hand than necessary. No one has ever made himself strong by showing how small someone else is. What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you. You can't fix yourself by breaking someone else. Sometimes it may seem someone is getting away with doing something wrong but it maybe God is just giving them a chance to make things right. Be patient! God sees everything and trust me, He has a good memory. There are people who come into your life not because they love you; they come into your life because they want to use you, they don't see you as a friend rather they see you as an opportunity. Be careful so you do not fall for their smoothness and suaveness. Regardless, show kindness to them when the need arises. Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change. To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens. Be careful what you say to people. If the words you spoke appeared on your skin, would you still be beautiful? Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Treat people you meet as if that will be the last time you will see them. Extend to them all care, kindness and cautiousness you can muster and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. God bless you big.
