A Country Song About Kindness – Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw

In a World Desperately Seeking Messages of Goodness, Tim McGraw Reminds Us to Always be Humble and Kind

We’ll never be perfect people, but as Tim McGraw gently sings these much-needed words for the times, he reminds us to tap into the better angels of our nature and to ‘always stay humble and kind.’

Challenges, global or personal, are mankind’s never-ending exercise. These struggles are our mental sit-up that lasts from birth until death.

Oh yes, we’re gifted the occasional reprieve, but then, sure as the sun sets, yet again … there it is… another often exhausting crisis.

Whether we realize it or not, these are the moments that test the content of our character, and sometimes … we fail.

However, that bright, unexpected light of glory peeks through … the moments we’ve arduously fought to master ourselves … that gives us the coveted ‘A’ and subsequent highest honor … the state of grace.

“Hold the door, say please, say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind”

(Lyrics) Don’t hold a grudge or a chip, and here’s why,: Bitterness keeps you from flyin’; Always Stay Humble and Kind

Find your peace and find your place in this world … words I personally end much of what I write with.

We can roll our eyes all we want, but the peace we hold inside gets us through life’s sit-ups. Peace can ONLY come from within. What we seek, we’ve always held.

With this in mind, during tumultuous times, it becomes easier and easier to be ‘humble and kind’ … It’s the test we’re all given. We share that. There isn’t a person on this magnificent earth who will walk a continuously paved road. No matter our station in life, we’re all tested.

So with that knowledge, we slowly, oh so very slowly, learn that it’s a smile, a hug, a thank you, a hand up, a tolerant spirit, and a compassionate heart that holds the power to change the world. These are the weapons of mass construction.

[Click to Tweet] “Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you, always stay humble and kind” by Tim McGraw

(Lyrics) Know the difference between sleeping with someone, And sleeping with someone you love, “I love you” ain’t no pickup line, so always stay humble and kind

Some fully feel the power of these words early in their romantic life, while others leave the planet, never having connected with another soul on this level. Of course neither soul is ‘better’ than the other; we all graduate to our next grades in life at our own pace. We’re human, we’re learning.

The above lyric could easily find a place on a bumper sticker or fridge magnet …visible for the young ones to read daily. Teaching love begins at home, and these are powerful teaching words.

(Lyrics) Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you, when you get where you’re going, don’t forget to turn back around, and help the next one in line, always stay humble and kind

We are all teachers, aren’t we? Each of us has something to offer. Life’s most difficult task is tapping into our gifts, no matter what they are.

Even if we only ever help one person in this life, that one person could help a thousand … and so goes the circle of life.

We also remember to treat ourselves with kindness as we get to where we’re going. As the song says, we should then turn around and offer a hand-up to the next one in line. It may all be as simple as that.

  1. Barbara, I always love the way you can take special words from a song and relate them to meaningful real-life situations. Great song!

  2. Beautiful voice, stunning images. I couldn’t help thinking, watching that video, how many copyright releases the video makers had to obtain! Where my mind goes.

    But your words, “it’s the peace we hold inside,” that’s the lesson I have to re-learn every day. Responding to the minor irritations and the big hurts of life without losing that peace–it sounds so easy, being humble, thinking the kind thought when someone or some situation assaults us. Without that peace inside, it’s nigh on impossible. And sometimes, I have to dig deep to find it. I don’t always find it in time. Thank goodness for forgiveness.

    And thank you for sharing this.

  3. Kathryn, what a beautiful comment that was. It sounds like you’re trying to be the best version of yourself as often as you remember and can; I’m actively trying to remember this everyday as well. Sometimes it’s easier than others, but you said it well ..thank goodness for forgiveness.

  4. Pat, thank you so much for saying that, and actually noticing that too – really really appreciate it. My husband says that about me as well – everytime I hear a song on the radio, and walk over to turn up the radio, he knows I’m about to tell him about the words I’m hearing.

  5. Cynthia says:

    I love most of Tim McGraw’s music, but this song is especially meaningful. So many people become “jaded” by life’s experiences and they forget to be kind. Humility is an even harder virtue to maintain. It really would be a much nicer world if people didn’t act so haughty and if they were just simply kind to one another.

  6. it’s less exhausting to be nice as well isn’t it, the more we do it, the more liberating it is..sorta win win
