STATION EDITORIAL

Posted June 5, 2021

 

This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president.  Remarks I heard from my Pastor, Adam Lewis at the First Church of the Nazarene in Decatur, had some talking points that I thought I'd share with you.

 

It's about kindness.

 

Some of the best things, don't cost a thing.

 

It costs you NOTHING to be a kind person.

 

We get used to many of the things that AREN'T kind, like being mean or angry, or other things like apathy or not being loving.

 

Pastor Lewis pointed out that we've gotten used to apathy, people putting others down to make themselves feel better, belittling others, or being mean.

 

I think the coronavirus pandemic we've all experienced the last year and a half, has made this worse.

 

Even before the state entered Phase 5 to return to normal, I've heard countless stories of fist fights at professional baseball games, and nationally, fights at N-B-A games as well as people belittling basketball and baseball players.

 

I know we've all been cooped up and feel like we're being let out of solitary confinement, but in his remarks, Pastor Lewis reminds us that we are to clothe ourselves with kindness.  Give an unexpected compliment.  Pay for the person behind you in the drive thru.  Let someone cut in front of you in line.  Give cookies to the mail carrier.  Stop in and say thank you to your local fire station firefighters.  Say hi to your neighbors.  Write a letter of encouragement.

 

As God says, His kindness and grace is enough for us.  We can't exhibit enough kindness or grace to others on this earth.  

 

It costs NOTHING to be a kind person.  Try it out.  It'll encourage others, and may just make you feel good!

 

That's our opinion, we welcome yours.  Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
