Do you remember the scene in the original “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” when the Grinch’s heart grew, after he observed the sweet spirit of the Whos, even after he tried to steal their Christmas? Boris Karloff’s voice booming… “In Whoville they say, the Grinch’s heart grew 3 sizes that day!” will forever be etched in my memory. That’s my favorite part!! When I was a child (back in the days when you could only watch it once a year 😊) it was THIS scene that always caused MY heart to swell too. (I’ve attached a Youtube video of it below – just in case you need refreshing.)
So today, instead of my usual Bible readings commentary, I am simply going to make a recommendation that is sure to grow YOUR heart as well. It’s as simple as this:
If you have Netflix (or some other means to do so) – Watch the show entitled: KINDNESS DIARIES!
I am sort of a Grinch myself when it comes to television and the media. I do not like the time wasted, violence and immorality portrayed, and lack of doing good in real life that the media affords our modern world. Like the Grinch, I’d often like to gather it all up and cart it away. But I found this show to be a delightful exception. Please join me in “voting “ for programming that builds character and spreads goodness in the world by watching this show. I won’t give any spoilers but I WILL say my heart was so touched that I wept in most every show. Believe me – It will be well worth your time! Kindness is one of the fruits of the Spirit of God Himself – and it is profoundly encouraging to see that it still resides in so many human hearts across this planet!
