Daily Living Made Easier

At SandwichINK this week, we've been talking a bit about ways to practice random acts of kindness during Random Acts of Kindness week. That conversation has included Facebook and Twitter and there have been some interesting and sweet ideas to give us an extra  burst of giving energy as we in the Sandwich Generation stay busy caring for the elderly parents and relatives in our family, along with babysitting grandchildren.

The phrase, "Practice Random Acts of Kindness," is fairly new, but the concept is as old as the Bible. And what's awesome is that, at the same time God tells us to do to others as we would have them do to us, practicing kindness to others – from family to neighbors and even to enemies – He shares promises of blessings for us as we do it. 

I love the encouraging Bible verses in Psalm 41:1-3:

 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; 

   the LORD delivers them in times of trouble. 

The LORD protects and preserves them— 

   they are counted among the blessed in the land— 

   he does not give them over to the desire of their foes. 

The LORD sustains them on their sickbed 

   and restores them from their bed of illness. 

(NIV)

The Amplified version puts it this way: 

BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, to be envied) is he who considers the weak and the poor; the Lord will deliver him in the time of evil and trouble.

The Lord will protect him and keep him alive; he shall be called blessed in the land; and You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.

The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of languishing; all his bed You [O Lord] will turn, change, and transform in his illness.

These are such comforting and encouraging Bible verses and they are just one example of the precious promises of God in the Bible for His children. As we stay busy caring for the elderly parents in our family while babysitting for and nurturing our grandchildren – teaching them even more about the love of God – we can rest in the joy and blessings of knowing we are walking according to the will of God and rejoice in His promises and provision. How comforting for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, and what a delightful legacy to leave for our friends and family!
