Seek and Set

I am still thinking about some notes I made last week, so may I share them with you for our Wednesday post?

2 Samuel 9:3The king said, “Is there not yet anyone of the house of Saul to whom I may show the kindness of God?” And Ziba said to the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan who is crippled in both feet.”

And now for the way I  applied this to myself and perhaps even the way you will apply it to you.

And I said, “Is there . . . anyone . . . to whom I may show the kindness of God?”

In what place will I find them? And how far will I have to go to find such people to whom I may (should) show the kindness of God?

And the answer?

Acts 1: (New American Standard Bible)8but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

Why! This will ‘kill two birds with one stone’ (you know I am not ‘speaking’ literally, don’t you?). What better way to witness (evangelize, which we have been commissioned to do) than to show the kindness of God?

Could we say that Jerusalem is home?

So for me the first one I should be showing the kindness of God to is my hubby.  And believe it or not, there’s room for improvement in me there. And then how about my children and my Grands, my siblings and their families?

And I could I  say Judea is my street, community, the Gulf Coast?

And who would that be for you?

And how about Samaria? Oh, that would be above the Mason Dixie line, wouldn’t it?  🙂

And remotest part of the earth?

Well, that gets every place else, doesn’t it?

Ephesians 4: (New American Standard Bible) 32Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

A last-minute note for pondering.  Saul hated David. He set himself to kill David. Yet David went looking to find someone of Saul’s descendants to whom he could show kindness.

Two. The remaining heir of the House of Saul was lame, cripple in both feet. There wasn’t much he could do to ‘repay’ David for any kindnesses David bestowed upon him.

As I said pondering material.

Love and hugs!!

Praying for These

Thank You, ABBA, for another day of life and living; thank You for another day of fellowship with You.  I ask that You, HOLY SPIRIT, minister Your Word to the hearts of our Readers; to encourage them and inspire them to seek and set themselves to show Your kindness to every soul in their lives… me too, ABBA. Me too in JESUS name. Amen and amen.

Until Thursday!
