Unexpected Kindness: Reflecting God's Mercy


Discover the importance of God’s mercy and how we can reflect it through unexpected acts of kindness. Learn how to make a positive impact on the lives of others and bring hope, joy, and comfort to those in need. Reflect on the question of how you can show unexpected kindness today. Embrace God’s mercy and be known for your love and compassion.


When we think of God, various characteristics come to mind. Some may see him as sovereign, all-knowing, or omnipresent. However, the Bible reveals that God’s most important characteristic is his mercy. Far from being angry or judgmental, God is overflowing with love and compassion for us. His mercy is displayed through unexpected acts of kindness.

Understanding Mercy

Mercy is love in action. It goes beyond mere words and extends a helping hand to those in need. Just as God shows us mercy, he calls us to do the same for others. In a world where kindness is often unexpected, our acts of mercy can leave a lasting impact on those around us.

Showing Unexpected Kindness

As followers of Christ, we are called to reflect God’s mercy by going the extra mile in showing unexpected kindness. This includes our family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, and anyone else in need. By extending a helping hand, offering a word of encouragement, or simply listening, we can make a difference in someone’s life.

Thanking God and Pledging Kindness

Let us take a moment to thank God for his abundant mercy towards us. Despite our shortcomings, his love and compassion never waver. In response, let us pledge to be vessels of his mercy by actively seeking opportunities to show unexpected kindness. By doing so, we can bring hope, joy, and comfort to those who need it most.

By embracing God’s mercy and reflecting it through unexpected acts of kindness, we can make a positive impact on the lives of others. Let us be known for our love and compassion, just as our Heavenly Father is known for his mercy towards us.
