experience kindness, share kindness

Recently shared a devotional thoughts with my worship team members about kindness.

The sharing partly inspired by the reading I read at Nicky Gumbel's devotional material.

My sharing is taken from 2 Samuel 9:1-13

In summary, King David wanted to show kindness to the household of Jonathan, who many years ago, helped David. Finding out that Mephibosheth is Jonathan's son, he welcomed him and make him dine together with the royals.

Everyday, we have the opportunity to experience kindness and share kindness. Big or small deeds. Be it fetching people or being offered a lift. Giving free drinks to strangers or being blessed with something. The list goes on.

I felt the world really need this.. kindness. In a world where so much darkness, we need such attitude to light up the world.

We are called to be salt and light of the world.. therefore, to show kindness is one way we can do it. To our friends, family and community. Most importantly, to the world.

In short, we are blessed to be a blessing.

All in all, remember that God Himself showed His kindness to us.. by sending Jesus to die on the Cross so we can be with God again. 

Like the example David showed to Mephibosheth, David restored his place among the royals despite Mephibosheth feeling inadequate. God restores our relationship so we can have fellowship with Him.
