The Kindness of God Seen Through Us

2 Samuel 9:3 (NLT)
       The king then asked him, “Is anyone still alive from Saul’s family? If so, I want to show God’s kindness to them.” 

Father there is nothing more that moves my heart to overflowing joy and deep humility than the expression of your kindness. As I see you act, personally in kindness, or demonstrate through others (like King David) acts of kindness, it is profoundly inspiring.

Father, as we continue to struggle with disease and difficult trials it is so helpful and hopeful to witness so many reaching out to those in need of daily necessities. 

What a great testimony this is to your kindness and it reminds us of what Jesus said: “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’  37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’  Matthew 25:35-40 (NLT)

Father, help us, in your Name and for the sake of others to always show Kindness of God.

In the name of Jesus, who is kindness incarnate, we pray.  Amen.
