There are so many ways we can show kindness to others! We can also lead people closer to God with our actions. Kindness is a beautiful thing!

I am aware that there are websites out there that support random acts of kindness such as:

http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/

I thought we could all share what ideas we had for random acts of kindness so that others may be inspired to act upon those ideas!

Important: I am not asking that we all share stories of how we have shown kindness to others in order to avoid prideful and boastful speech. Also, so that we all may keep our kindness between a person and God and perhaps the person that they have shown kindness to so that we may be rewarded smilies/icon_3nodding.gif

*Please, post one random act of kindness per post so that everyone has a chance to post a random act of kindness idea! ^_^

A video I enjoy that shows how far a random act of kindness can go:

Helping someone carry their groceries.

Opening the door for someone who has their hands full. You'd be surprised how often this doesn't happen.

@Ohana - That's true! I can't tell you how many times that I've actually been out somewhere and someone doesn't open the door and lets it shut on my face, or they are like, "Here, I'll get that." and let go of the door when I'm halfway done walking through.

Hmm...another random act of kindness...how about:

Tell a family member or friend how much you actually care for them and express how important they are to you.
