Do you ever struggle with knowing how you can express kindness to others? Your Next 24 hours:one day of kindness can change everything, is loaded with ideas about how to express kindness for others…. from seeing the actions others have taken, to simply listing off ideas you might wish to pursue.
Twenty Two chapters contained in 167 pages, each chapter is short and written around a central idea. A variety of quotes are given from the bible as well as from people throughout the ages. Examples of kind people are provided from all walks of life, from the ordinary joe to politicians to actors.
I love the lists of ideas….some are ones I hadn’t thought of before. Each chapter has it’s own list, generally around the topic theme.
Each chapter starts off with a quote that has something do to with the chapter. I found the quotes were often enough to make me think, setting the stage well for the following chapter.
won’t say that this is a particularly Christian book, although it is
produced by Baker Books. Quotes from the bible are given the same
relative importance as quotes from anywhere else.
I agree with the premise that through kindness we can change a lot in
our neighbourhood and country, if we don’t have the grounding in Christ,
our kindness toward others will ultimately not change the world.
In the end, if you want to read a book that helps you come up with different ways for you to show kindness to others, this book is chalk full of them.
