Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week  

Serving Others, as Christians, Through the Value of Kindness 

We’ve all been there, had a small gesture go a long way… Maybe someone complimented the way you look, held the door open, or paid for your coffee, and it surely brought a huge smile to your face! 

This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week, and as Christians, we are called to do good works, let this week be a great excuse and REASON to get up, serve others, and perform random acts of kindness! 

“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” – Galatians 6:10

What Does Kindness Mean for Christians? 

Adding Kindness to Your Everyday Life 

In general, kindness for Christians is about treating others with respect, understanding, and compassion. It’s about being thoughtful and generous in our actions and words, and it’s about offering help and support when it is needed. Kindness means being humble, showing mercy, and forgiving those who have wronged us. It also means loving our neighbors and those in need, and treating everyone with the same respect, regardless of their background or beliefs. 

Luke 6:27 – 28 reminds us, “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.” 

  • Luke’s verse perfectly captures the essence of kindness for Christians: always choosing to love, instead of being led towards hate. 


And Isiah 1:17 helps us to live our life: “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” 

  • Seeking justice and kindness out of life is important because it helps to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully; furthermore, justice ensures that those who have been wronged can have their grievances addressed and given a chance to have their voices heard. 


Kindness involves being understanding and empathetic, and showing appreciation and gratitude for others. Kindness is more than just words and actions; it’s having an open heart and mind and being willing to help and support those in need. 

Now, Here are 16 Ways to Perform Random Acts of Kindness this Week!

Final Thoughts & Reminders  

Direction Through the Word of God 

  1. “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”


– Galatians 5:13 – 14  


  1. “‘For I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked, and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”


– Matthew 25:35 – 40
