"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a
sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be Like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."
-Isaiah 58:11 (NIV 1984)
As I thought about the upcoming Christmas holidays and all that is involved in getting ready for the season, the words kind and kindness came to mind. I have endeavored to live by those words. Even so, I realized that in the hustle and bustle of Christmas, it can be easy for each of us to neglect this fruit of the Spirit that the Bible encourages us to practice.
