'The kindnesses of the Lord I shall sing forever; to generation after generation I shall make known Your faithfulness, with my mouth. For I said, "Forever will it be built with kindness; as the heavens, with which You will establish Your faithfulness."' -- Psalms 89:2-3
The lessons of kindness coming from the scriptures are as boundless as the kindness Hashem used when He formed Creation. The midrash teaches us that the Torah begins with kindness (the clothing of Adam and Eve) and ends with kindness (the burial of Moses). It seems that chesed is a fundamental force of the universe.

We all have met one. One who is crying out in the wilderness, trying to get our attention to change our ways and show us that everything we are doing is totally wrong. We usually listen the first time, and then let their words take flight on the wind. Why? Their words eat at our very core and draw lines of division between us and "them." Who are these voices? They are the zealots of every religious institution - the ones who seek to get to the heart of the very evil in their midst (which is all of us).
