“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).
Don’t you wish your Thanksgiving was akin to one of those wholesome holiday movies? You know the ones I’m talking about. Entire towns are springing with joy. Large feasts are shared between families where love abounds. The town miser experiences a change of heart and performs a grand gesture of generosity.
But often our end-of-year celebrations are plagued by negative attitudes, overrun by stress, and lacking in kindness. We’re left torn on how to react to people who are rude and ungrateful while remaining patient and loving.
Although we feel our own positivity might not make a difference, one small act of kindness can spark a change more significant than we could ever imagine. Our joy can change a negative atmosphere into something Hallmark would be proud to air on their channel.
So, to help dole out the holiday cheer, here are 10 ways to spread kindness and positivity to those around you this Thanksgiving.
