Kindness is Better

My wife and I love watching the “Wonder Years” reruns. Kevin Arnold, the lead character, was my age and lived a similar teenage life as I did.

Recently we watched an episode when Kevin went to work with his father. This episode reflected how management styles have changed in the workplace since 1968. Bosses during that era seemed to be more dictatorial and demanding than today.

In one scene, Kevin watched as his father was verbally abused and threatened by his boss as Kevin’s father’s direct reports were in the room. It was no wonder Mr. Arnold hated his job.

Proverbs 11:17 teaches, “Those who are kind benefit themselves, but the cruel bring ruin on themselves.”

If you lead others, remember kindness leads to better results than being cruel.
