Thoughts: The Goal is not To be Kind

People often think that being kind should be one’s life mission. After reading many books and the bible, I have learnt that the goal is not to be kind. What I mean by this, kindness should just come out naturally like it’s part of your genes. Some people try hard to be kind and it’s not really being kind; It’s called being fake and dishonest. Some people say fake it until you make it, but not with kindness though. It doesn’t work that way. Based on my experience, trying hard to be kind resulted into making me angry, bitter, depressed, and always expecting a return from others. I kind of expected gratitude. Since, I’m trying so hard to be kind I expect the same thing but in reality, that’s not how it works. However, I have learned to rely on Jesus and always fix my eyes on him because knowing Jesus makes me lose sight of looking into other people that are flawed just like me but looking to Jesus makes me more compassion and understanding which results to kindness to other people without expecting any returns. Looking to Jesus fixes my eyes to see Love and peace in this messy world. I’ve learnt that the goal is to always look to Jesus.
