6 by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
“Kindness” is love that acts toward someone for their benefit; it is to be useful to others (Ga 6:10; Ga 5:22; Co 3:12).
Our kindness is a reflection of God’s goodness toward us.
Kindness puts others at ease; it does not attempt to cause them pain. It will open people to the gospel where belligerence will fail. It breaks down barriers that others may have toward us.
