When the time arrives that this Feast of Tabernacles pictures mankind will be shell-shocked. Christ will have returned and we will be newly resurrected. We are the ones God has called to be teachers to help and assist these individuals. How will we respond to them? Of this future time God says that with everlasting kindness He will have mercy on them. When David was heart-broken over his sins and repented, he says in Psalm 51 “In Your loving kindness be merciful to me”. God shows great kindness toward us. Kindness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and it is a trait we are to develop. If we are to exhibit kindness to those in need after the events of the Tribulation, we need to develop them now so that they are an engraved character trait that natural flows from us. The 8 days of the Feast will provide us with many opportunities to be kind to one another. Kindness begins within our own families and expands outward to include our church community and further still to include the surrounding community. Kindness is expressed in many ways. Some of them are: forgiveness, patience and being warm-hearted. Through their parents our young people are holy and God has a special place for them in His coming Kingdom. This advanced kindness is sincere and can cause a ripple effect throughout the community to build unity and oneness. Whether we are young or old, let others be impacted by our kindness.
