Nice vs. Kind




























The nice person is focused on himself – he does nice things in order to be perceived (by others and by himself) as a “nice person.”

The kind person is focused on others – all he wants is to relieve the suffering of the living, conscious creature in front of him.

When we dig deeper into these two “personalities,” we will find that they are often diametrically opposed.

     * The kind person is strong. The nice person is weak.
     * The kind person is selfless. The nice person is selfish.
     * The kind person feels empathy. The nice person is narcissistic.
     * The kind person is happy. The nice person does not know happiness.

Ultimately: The core of a “kind person” is love. The core of a “nice person” is fear.


Which would you rather be – nice or kind?

I did a search in Biblegateway.com, there were zero results for the word "nice."

“Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. (Job 6:14 NIV)

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12 NIV)
