We can easily over-think the best way to bless people with all touchiness over different labels, identifiers, and politically correct language in vogue today. Isn't it refreshing to be reminded of God's simple relational truth for us in today's verse? Share a kind word. That kind word can be a blessing that cheers the anxious, encourages the disappointed, and comforts the downhearted. And, because kindness is part of the Spirit's fruit in our lives,  we know the Holy Spirit is at work to give us an appropriate kind word in whatever situation we are engaged.  We can share our hope and our kind words with gentleness and respect and trust that God will use our kind words to bring them a blessing! 
Father, I need Your help and Your wisdom to listen to those around me and have the ability to offer them a kind word. You have blessed me so richly, Father, so please use me to be a blessing. I ask this in Jesus' name and to share my hope in Jesus with others. Amen.
