This week I read 2 Samuel 9. It tells the story of David's kindness to Mephibosheth.
It's a long story that I won't go into here (if you really want to know the whole story read 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel in the Old Testament. The short version is this...David had a friend named Jonathan, Jonathan's dad's name was Saul, and Jonathan had a son named Mephibosheth (Saul's grandson). Confused yet??? Like I said, read 1 and 2 Samuel...well one day David asks this question "Is anyone still alive from Saul's family? If so I want to show God's kindness to them." God's kindness....the words jumped right off the page. So I asked the obvious question "Why God's Kindness? Why not just regular ordinary, everyday kindness? Why say specifically "GOD'S KINDNESS?" So I went searching for God's kindness, longing to know what it meant. Well, I found the answer in Ephesians 2:1-7...No I am NOT going to put it here! You go read it!! RIGHT NOW!!! : )
Did you see it? Did you see God's kindness and what it is??
Now read Colossians 3:12...Go ahead, read it and see what it says about kindness.
Good Stuff :)
What is God's Kindness and how is it different from our human kindness?? Leave you comments. I would love to know what you think.
