Whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones … will not go unrewarded.   – Mt 10:42

Reflection.  Kindness is its own reward, but when you are kind to others, they will be kind to you in return.  Kindness is a defense against anger, resentment, and bitterness.  A gentle spirit better serves your soul and your mental health.

Prayer.  Dear Lord, help me to attain the gift of sweetness of spirit.
