Being kind isn't always what we think it is. It is also being truthful. It is sometimes allowing others to suffer the consequences of their behavior (for this is how we learn and change). Yes, it also includes being merciful, compassionate, and gracious, but it can also mean telling the truth in love when that will help someone grow. Not as a judge, but as a fellow sojourner, humbly and with gentleness and patience.
