Warmheartedness refuses to hyphenate life

Make it your aim to be warmhearted and amiable. That will make life more fun and give you better interactions with people. Embracing warmheartedness is life-changing!

Intelligence without warmheartedness produces cold, hard facts that are often used as weapons. We need to learn to balance intelligence, with warmheartedness, so that we don’t use what we know in selfish and self-justifying ways. Education without warmheartedness tends to be very cold.

Honest, kind, and amiable conversation is a warmheartedness building tool. The world needs more people who will demonstrate and promote warmheartedness. Be one!

If you want someone to consider your opinion, be amiable when you express it. Warmheartedness tears down walls and enables people to experience deep, inner connection. It perceives purpose and meaning in every encounter with people.

Being sincerely amiable and warmhearted doesn’t mean that we agree with people. It just means that we care about them. Kindness warms the heart of both the one who gives it and the one who receives it.

Fear drives away warmheartedness. It replaces it with a defensive and hostile attitude.

Warmheartedness is contagious if we don’t cover it with a mask. The hostile climate in our culture cries out for warmheartedness.

It’s better to be amiable than bitter–better to forgive than to give out spite. An amiable attitude attracts kindness; an angry one generates animosity. Amiable encounters with people are inspiring. Go be amiable and warmhearted. Then you’ll be a blessing to yourself and to the people you meet.

Affable-tize your life. Be kind and friendly to everyone. Without warmheartedness, true happiness seems like an illusion.

Warmheartedness is too important to be hyphenated! We need to pull it together and let our heart overflow with kindness and compassion. It’s never too late to get started being warmhearted.

“I have always had this view about the modern education system: we pay attention to brain development, but the development of warmheartedness we take for granted.” – Dalai Lama

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
