Kindness to All

In Colin Powell’s recent book, the former Secretary of State shared a story about his interaction with the employees who parked cars. Knowing there were many more employee cars than spaces, Mr. Powell wondered how they decided who to give the best parking positions.

“Mr. Secretary,” they said, “When you drive in, if you lower the window, look out, smile or know our name, you’re number one to get out. But if you look straight ahead, don’t show you see us or that we are doing something for you, well, you are likely to be one of the last to get out.”

Colossians 3:12 teaches, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”

A great leader shows kindness to everyone.
