7) Virtue #4 – Kindness

Kindness is more than being capable of being sympathetic and compassionate.

Kindness is more than compassion. The very of nature of kindness to another person makes that person have a sense of worth and usefulness. By exhibiting kindness to another person we are affirming their worth as a person, we are telling them that they are important to us. Kindness is being generous, friendly, or warm-hearted. It means having a kind and gentle nature.

Kindness is a language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand. When we understand other people and can walk in their shoes, we will treat them with kindness also, we will make them feel worthy.

When practicing kindness, people show an understanding for others and treat them with respect. Kindness involves doing thoughtful deeds for people who are in need. It often means putting other people's feelings before your own.
