Random Acts of Kindness

Description

Live the life of a servant--always looking, waiting and willing to bless another person, inconveniencing yourself and even going beyond what you've been asked to do.

“She [Rebekah] said, “Certainly, drink!” And she held the jug so that he could drink. When he had satisfied his thirst she said, “I’ll get water for your camels, too, until they’ve drunk their fill.” She promptly emptied her jug into the trough and ran back to the well to fill it, and she kept at it until she had watered all the camels.
The man watched, silent. Was this God’s answer? Had God made his trip a success or not?” Genesis 24:18-21 (MSG)

Turned out it was. Abraham’s servant was on a mission to find Isaac, his master’s son, a wife. He was depending on God to show him the right woman and prayed for a sign.

What if the very answer you are waiting on is hinging on someone lowering their jug?

What if the very blessing someone is waiting for hinges upon you lowering yours?

Random acts of kindness. That’s what we call them today. However, it’s really not that random at all. It’s actually biblical.

Rebekah lowered her jug. She wasn’t looking for a husband; she was living a life that showed love and kindness. She was following God by being a servant.

Little did she know that God was using her obedience as an answer to someone’s prayer and a link to the very promise of God?

When’s the last time you lowered your jug?

It’s a simple concept that we so often miss. Live the life of a servant. Always looking, waiting and willing to bless someone else, inconvenience ourselves and even go beyond what we’ve been asked to do.

How will you lower jug today?
