Hello! good people of God, welcome to another episode of our daily bible nugget, in today’s episode, you will learn a powerful message from the bible. The title of this episode is, an act that transforms life.
When Moses fled from Egypt to Midian, we read in the book of Exodus chapter 1 verse 15 that he sat down by a well. Now, when the seven daughters of Jethro, the priest of Midian came to the well to water their fathers flock, they were driven away by some shepherds, but Moses got up to their defense and helped them water their flock. The girls returned home earlier than usual; this made their father to ask questions. Why have you returned so early Jethro asked? They answered, An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds, he even drew water for us and watered the flock. Then their father asked, And, where is he? Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat. Well, as the story has it, Moses was invited, and he ended up marrying one of the daughters of Jethro. If we closely analyze the passage, we can glean numerous lessons. Firstly, we can learn the importance of appreciation. Jethro taught his daughters the how very vital it is to appreciate someone that did you a favor. Also, from this passage, we can see the power of “Act of kindness” and what follows it. Moses showed unsolicited kindness to the daughters of Jethro at the well. The girls were driven away because they were powerless, but Moses acted like a gentle man, he did an act of kindness to the daughters of Jethro without expecting anything in return, this act later resulted to an interesting end. Child of God, I want you to understand that there is a very big reward in being kind. Be kind to everyone, whether you know them or not. Moses was a stranger in Midian, but that did not hinder him from doing kindness. So, today, try to be kind to anyone that you come in contact with. You can show kindness in many ways; showing someone direction is an act of kindness, rising up for the elderly is an act of kindness, giving charity, community service, etc. act of kindness can turn things around in your life, so, don’t forget to show someone kindness every day. Make it a habit and your will live to enjoy the benefits like Moses.
