Sabbath Keeping


"Let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises 
kindness, justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the LORD."
~ Jeremiah 9:24

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with the knowledge 
that you are never alone."
~ Audrey Hepburn

"The greatest thing a man can do for his heavenly Father 
is to be kind to some of his other children."
~ Henry Drummond

"You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know how soon it will be too late."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Want to snatch a day from the manacles of boredom? Do overgenerous deeds, acts beyond reimbursement. Kindness without compensation. Do a deed for which you cannot be repaid."
~ Max Lucado ~
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." 
~ Aesop

"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again." ~ Og Mandino ~

"Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate." ~ Albert Schweitzer ~

"Kindness has converted more sinners than zeal, eloquence, or learning." ~ Frederick W. Faber ~

"There's no use doing a kindness if you do it a day too late." 
~ Charles Kingsley ~

"Kindness is the sunshine in which virtue grows." 
~ Robert Green Ingersoll

"Let us hide our pains and sorrows. But, while we hide them, let them also be spurs within us to urge us on to all manner of overflowing kindness and sunny humor to those around us. When the very darkness within us creates a sunshine around us, then has the spirit of Jesus taken possession of our souls." ~ Frederick W. Faber ~

"Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness." 
~ C. S. Lewis ~

"Unseasonable kindness gets no thanks." 
~ Thomas Fuller ~ 

"No matter how low down you are; no matter what your disposition has been; you may be low in your thoughts, words, and actions; you may be selfish; your heart may be overflowing with corruption and wickedness; yet Jesus will have compassion upon you. He will speak comforting words to you; not treat you coldly or spurn you, as perhaps those of earth would, but will speak tender words, and words of love and affection and kindness. Just come at once. He is a faithful friend - a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." ~ D. L. Moody ~

"God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him
 in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus, 
in order that in the coming ages He might show 
the incomparable riches of His grace, 
expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus."
~ Ephesians 2:6-7

  2. Kindness holds it all . . .
    Let me not fail to keep it paramount in my mantra . . .
    A smile, a hand, a word, presence, help, never too busy, the extra, a note card, remembering, caring, holds kindness most high.
    It is possible for each of us . . .
    Thank you Sandra this was a wonderful Sabbath Keeping . . ,

  3. Excellent quotes and reminders of just how life changing kindness can be. Thanks! :)
    I keep a document on my computer desktop where I copy and paste good quotes that I come across online. I've often copied your entire Sabbath Keeping post. I think this one is worthy of saving...so I will. ;)

  4. Thank you very much for this inspiration and reminder! Great collection!

    My father was a friendly man, even near death. He never fixed his own problems, always being kind and empathic.

    I want to learn from these quotes and move them in my heart and mind, going my pilgrim-way....

  7. Sandra, all of the quotes are so helpful and appropriate as they always are to the theme of each Sabbath. But I have to tell you that your very life expresses the kindness that your theme is about. I have never met you in person but your emails to me since I've "met" you are just plain downright kindness itself. I want to be more like you when I grow up.
