Today is a day where we celebrate being nice to one another, how appropriate for the time we are living in!
Say Something Nice Day began in Charleston, South Carolina, when the Mayors of North Charleston and Charleston came together with members of the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery and the South Carolina Baptist Convention to create a day to be kind to the special people in our lives, like our children.
It’s also a day to remember and celebrate people who provide us with a variety of services, such as bus drivers, healthcare workers, and teachers. And, it’s a great opportunity to apologize to people that we might have wronged or hurt through our behavior. The aim of this special day is to fight against unkindness, bullying, and the lack of politeness that dominates society today. The creators hope that this one day of pleasantness will grow until people are nice to each other every day.
Set an example and encourage your children to be nice to each other on this day.
It’s as simple as complimenting a co-worker, forgiving someone who wronged you, or choosing to react with grace instead of anger.
“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32
Here is a complete list of Bible verse that all have to do with kindness.
