Gamache series she recently binge-read. Gamache is smart, humble, ethical, and most of all kind. He lives by a code: in all of his interactions he asks himself: “Is it true? Is it kind? Does it need to be said?” And he teaches his new recruits there are four things that lead to wisdom, four sentences we learn to say, and mean: “I don’t know. I need help. I’m sorry. I was wrong.”
The Bible gives us similar advice. Ephesians 4:32 says, “Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” First Corinthians 13:4 says, “Love is patient, love is kind,” and in Galatians 5:22 we read, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness.” Kindness was the whole point of Pastor Neal’s recent seven-week course. If you missed the course, read the book he co-authored with Nicole Phillips: Workplace Positivity. I really don’t read books, but this one is a keeper. . . and so is the Word of God.
