But this song and this band were good enough without help from the government. The lyrics and harmony make this classic a joy to hear.
Listen to "Little Kind Words:
We Christians must say these "little kind words" to each other often. As it says in 1 Peter 1:22 (BBE), "And as you have made your souls clean, being ruled by what is true, and loving one another without deceit, see that your love is warm and from the heart:"
Likewise, Hebrews 10:24(BBE) reads, "And let us be moving one another at all times to love and good works;"
Also, we read in Hebrews 3:13 (BBE) the reason why we need to strengthen one another. "But give comfort to one another every day as long as it is still Today; so that no one among you may be made hard by the deceit of sin:"
This seems to be obvious but we do sometimes forget to give encouragement to each other. As 1 Thessalonians 4:9 (BBE) exhorts, "But about loving the brothers, there is no need for me to say anything to you in this letter: for you have the teaching of God that love for one another is right and necessary;"
Additionally, we must be humble and consider others. As Paul wrote in Romans 12:10 (BBE), we must, "Be kind to one another with a brother's love, putting others before yourselves in honour;"
By doing this, we give each other encouragement and we keep each other's faith strong. Even a quick e-mail or text of comfort can make a big difference.
On Monday, I'll post about what writing and the gospel have in common.
