Daily Devotional for Wednesday July 1, 2020
Be kind to others!!!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, my simple prayer today is for You to give the heart I need so that I can be KIND to every person I encounter throughout the day. Family, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and strangers, let me be KIND to each person You bring across my path, a heartfelt kindness that can only come from You! In Jesus name I pray, AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: In Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi, he writes, “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Out of all of the disturbing things we have been watching unfold in our country in the past couple of weeks, watching people take a knee has been most troubling. Getting on your knee is an act of capitulation, and act of surrender. It is currently being done to show solidarity with the radical race hustler group Black Lives Matter. It is also being used to force white people to show their shame for racism, a satanic act of division that has infested mankind worldwide since the first people groups 6,000 years ago. My friend, I can assure you that William Herbert Keller will take a knee to no man or no movement of men. I WILL ONLY BOW MY KNEE TO ONE...JESUS!!! BY THE WAY, THE FACT IS EVERY PERSON AFTER TAKING THEIR LAST BREATH WILL BOW THEIR KNEE TO KING JESUS AND CONFESS HIM LORD!!! THE SAD FACT IS, IF YOU DON’T MAKE THE CHOICE TO BOW YOUR KNEE TO JESUS AND ACCEPT HIM AS LORD BY FAITH IN THIS LIFE, YOU WILL BE LOST AND BOUND FOR THE FIRES OF HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY.

How many times in a day do we lose our temper, snap at those we love, ignore those we work with, go to school with, interact with each day? Sometimes, we are so wrapped up in our life, our problems, what we are trying to get done, we simply tune out others. You see, being kind requires us to care for others. It requires us to concentrate on their needs. It forces us to look away from ourselves and look at others.
Like many of the things I write about each day, this is something we usually overlook, often take for granted, and seldom think about. If you asked most people they would tell you that they are "kind" to others. Most of the time they are probably right. But God has told us to be kind to others, and again, in our attempt to be living within His will, this is another facet of our life we must be aware of.
*Being kind in a Biblical sense means that we need to put others before ourselves. Look at serving others instead of serving ourselves. Kindness requires our focus be on someone else.
One thing I learned early in my ministry was that only God can change a human heart. He uses us as instruments to touch peoples' lives and soften their hearts so He can speak to them. Our acts of kindness to others is a way for God to speak to someone who needs Him. You never know where a person really is in terms of their life, but God does. Our kindness to someone at a critical point can be the act that opens them to hear God's voice speaking to them.
I love you and care about you very much. I will be praying today for you to focus this day on being kind to others. Never underestimate how God is using you in the lives of others. It is usually in those simple acts that God uses us the most.
Practice being kind to others each day so that it becomes natural. Our nature is to focus on ourselves first and others second. God wants us to change that nature to focus on others first and ourselves second. That means we must trust God to look out after our needs. I am praying that your faith be increased to trust Him to care for you, while you care for others.
This is a great day today. It is unique because it is like no other day, and when it is gone, will never be back. Make the most of it and to everyone you meet today, BE KIND!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
