Can you be kind when you put your mind to it?

December 26 is a legal holiday in both Canada and Great Britain. Come on America, join the crowd. Today is "Boxing Day" in some parts of the world. No, it’s not a day to honor George Foreman and his cronies. Rather, it’s a day to show kindness to those who provide valuable services to you. In the days when the holiday first began, people would share "gift boxes" with their milkman, postman, lamplighter, iceman and other service givers. Many of those occupations are extinct, but without a doubt, you can think of others whom you truly appreciate throughout the year. What about the clerks who handle your dry cleaning or service station needs? Well, you get the idea.

Your Creator will be impressed with your kindness as He inspired: "Be kind and compassionate to one another" (Eph. 4:32 NIV) However, if you are one of those people who need a little more incentive, here’s a proverb that God also inspired: "A kind man benefits himself" (Prov. 11:17 NIV). Showing kindness is one of those arenas in which you simply can’t lose. So get your heart in shape and begin "boxing."

Anyone can be the "heavyweight champ" of "boxing."
