Fruit of The Spirit: (5) KINDNESS
KINDNESS is the fifth of the nine parts of the Fruit of The Spirit. Kindness can be categorized into divine kindness and human kindness. Kindness is reflected in the Bible with various terms including kindness, goodness, mercy, pity, love, grace, favor, compassion, gentleness, tenderness. In Greek and Hebrew versions, there are also several terms used for kindness.

Kindness.

#n attribute of God and $uality desirable but not consistently found in humans.

%he main problem in understanding kindness is the fact that it is one of a series of terms that are overlapping and not clearly or consistently distinguishable in meaning.%his is true not only in &nglish '!indness, $oodness, 'er&y, pity, %o#e, $ra&e, fa#or, &o'passion, $ent%eness, tenderness, etc.( but also in Greek '&hrestos, e%ee'on, oi!tir'on, &haris, a$ape, sp%an&hnon, epiei!eia, etc.( and in Hebrew 'hesed, to(, raha'i', he'%ah, hen, etc.(. )onsider, for e*ample, the relationship of love, goodness, kindness, and mercy in lu + ,-",+. .evertheless, although distinctions are not consistent, kindness 'like goodness, love( tends to cover a broad range of meaning, with mercy and grace being progressively narrower.

It is manifest in what is called 1common grace.1 God is kind to all he has made ' 2salm 34- 5 (, even when his creatures are ungrateful and wicked ' 6uke + ,- 7 cf. 8att - 4- (. His kindness is intended to lead to repentance, not to re9ection of him ' :om ; 4 (.

In the second place, it is the believer who can truly celebrate God's kindness, even in areas of experience not directly related to salvation from the guilt and punishment of sin.
