Welcome to another episode of our daily bible study. today’s episode is titled; “How to show true kindness.” you can watch the video here.
In the previous episode of our daily bible study, we discussed the topic that says; Trust God and His plan. According to that very episode, we saw that when Pharaoh freed the Israelites, God did not allow them to follow the road through the Philistine country.
God knew that, if war brakes out on the way, some of the Israelites and the mixed multitude from Egypt that joined the congregation will turn back to Egypt. Instead, God led them in the way of the desert, in order to avoid that from happening, and at the same time making their journey longer. This prolonged journey could be seen as some sort of disappointment by the Israelites; but it is a tremendous lesson to all of us.
We learned from this that, there are times when our expectations might be disappointed. That doesn’t mean God had abandoned us, it means He has a better and battle-free plan for us. We only need to trust God and His plans for us. If you have not watched the video of that very episode, it is in the playlist. You can watch it after watching today’s episode.
Today’s episode of our daily bible study is titled; how to show true kindness.
Before Joseph died in Egypt, he assured his brethren that God will remember them and take them out of Egypt. At the same time, Joseph asked them to take his remains along with them when they leave Egypt.
Many years after Joseph died, the Israelites set on the journey of leaving Egypt, Moses had to see to it that the request of Joseph was fulfilled. He made sure that the remains of Joseph were taking along as they left Egypt. Moses knew that Joseph cannot repay him for doing him the favor of taking his bones along while they left Egypt, yet he had to do it anyway.
Sometimes, we are motivated to show kindness because of the honor that comes with it or the return gain. However, the best way to do kindness, is to do it to people who cannot repay us.
Moses knew he will get no earthly reward by carrying the corpse of Joseph with him; he did it notwithstanding.
From this we can learn that; when you do kindness, you should do it without expecting anything in return.
Hope on God to reward you for your act of kindness. God’s reward is always the best. Do not go about broadcasting how you helped others. put yourself in their place, how would you feel if someone broadcasts their kindness to you? You will feel embarrassed. Hence, do not make another person fell same. Remember that God is the great rewarder. He will reward every true kindness and act of compassion. So, make it your habit to show kindness, but do so stealthily, so that the receiver will not be embarrassed, and as you do so, God will bless you beyond your imagination.
May God bless us immensely that we might show true kindness to those in need. Amen.
