Now for any good to be done or executed there must be some desire in the one carrying out the well-doing. This desire to do good flows from an inner fire or flame to do good to another. The kind have this flame of love which is en-kindled in them flowing outward into the action of showing kindness to their neighbour.
Kindness is goodness in action, sweetness of disposition, gentleness in dealing with others, benevolence, kindness, affability. The word describes the ability to act for the welfare of those taxing your patience. The Holy Ghost removes abrasive qualities from the character of one under His control.
The word kindness comes from the Greek word chrestotes (khray-stot-ace), which meant to show kindness or to be friendly to others and often depicted rulers, governors, or people who were kind, mild, and benevolent to their subjects. Anyone who demonstrated this quality of chrestotes was considered to be compassionate, considerate, sympathetic, humane, kind, or gentle. The apostle Paul uses this word to depict God's incomprehensible kindness for people who are unsaved.
One scholar has noted that when the word chrestotes is applied to interpersonal relationships, it conveys the idea of being adaptable to others. Rather than harshly require everyone else to adapt to his own needs and desires, when chrestotes is working in a believer, he seeks to become adaptable to the needs of those who are around him.
Kindness is doing something and not expecting anything in return. Kindness is respect and helping others without waiting for someone to help one back. It implies kindness no matter what. We should live "in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left". 2 Cor 6:6-7
The sixth fruit is Goodness
When we are well disposed to those things closest to us, namely our neighbours, in the first place in a way of doing good to them, in this consists the fruit of Goodness.
If we have goodness as the fruit of the Spirit then we shall never be quick to become hasty, furious, self-centered, egoistic, angry, jealous, prideful, hateful, lying, sadistic, un-forgiving, worrying, short-sighted and immature in our Faith rather the fruit of goodness will motivate us to become considerate, meek, enduring, contended, joyful, temperate, persevering and rich in munificence with an ultimate goal to glorify, magnify and exalt the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So you may sum it up thus:
The state or quality of being good
- Moral excellence; virtue;
- Kindly feeling, kindness, generosity,joy in being good
- The best part of anything; Essence; Strength;
- General character recognized in quality or conduct.
