how do i get close to god“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.” (See Proverbs 3:3-4) Truth. Well that’s a good thing to have since that was the only thing Jesus spoke. Kindness. A great thing also since Jesus displayed kindness to everyone, even those who mocked Him. Those two items - kindness and truth - are things that belong to us as well. We have them in us. We have the ability to show them around like a shiny new watch and pass them out like fancy business cards. We don’t have to let them blow away down the street like a hat in a sudden wind…but, we sometimes do anyway. Instead, on those windy days, wrap kindness and truth around your neck like a cozy scarf. You’ll keep them with you and stay warm at the same time. A two for one special! God will be pleased with your being kind to others despite circumstances, sudden or otherwise. God will like that you’re speaking the truth – His truth – into a world that feeds off lies. And, as far as the “man” liking what you’re doing…that should make things easier on you. Everyone likes to be treated nice. “Nice” is a space heater tossed into a room full of ice cubes. (Not sure why that analogy just happened, but it did.)
