Scripture Reading: Exodus 2:18-21
And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon today? And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock. And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread. And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses, Zipporah his daughter.
Reflections: Having fled from Egypt, Moses had become a wanderer in life. As he sat by the well in Midian, little did he know that his plight was about to change. He looked up and saw the seven girls coming towards him again. Their father, Jethro had asked them to bring him home. Apparently his act of kindness of saving them from the cruelty of the shepherds and also drawing water from the well for them had reached his ears. Soon they got home. He was astounded at what unusual door his gesture of kindness had opened for him. Jethro offered him free accommodation, employed him on his ranch and gave him one of his daughters to marry. It was a complete wonder to see how his life as a wanderer had just been reversed within a matter of hours. Like Moses, the service of kindness you render to people, will surely open doors of wonders in your life! (Galatians 6:9, Hebrews 6:10. Acts 20:35). Be motivated and keep showing kindness to people as God gives you the opportunity.
Prayer: Dear Lord help me to be kindhearted towards people.
Confession: I am kindhearted in life. God rewards me for every service of kindness I render.
