Agape love is not an emotion but decision. Because of that I am working on agape in my life by constantly reading over passages that deal with love. The best known is I Corinthians 13. One expression of agape that I am working on is kindness. That is why this verse spoke to me as I read it.
Many people have the delusion that the God of the Old Testament is just a God of wrath. No so. He is the God who speaks of “kindness” (2617a) [chesed]. This brought to mind what God said to Micah:
(Micah 6:8 KJV) He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy (2617a), and to walk humbly with thy God?So? Kindness is expected. Kindness is a choice. Kindness can be developed. Be kind.
