How does kindness in the home impact the family?
Dr. Joel Beeke explains in this video that the lack of kindness in a family is a sin. In fact, it is an abomination in the sight of God. Kindness in the family is an important virtue.
A mother and father should set a pattern of kindness. Children should see that their parents love each other. Parents ought to model love and kindness to their children. A husband should strive to love his wife as Christ loved the Church. Children will be positively impacted by seeing that example within the home.
Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV) - "And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you."
