WHAT A KIND HEART!
TEXT: GENESIS 50:21
BIBLE TEXT:
“Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them” (Genesis 50:21).
“It pays to be nice because what goes around really does come around,” a writer has rightly opined. Joseph’s brothers least expected that the evil they plotted against their innocent brother would rebound against them. They were shocked to their bones to discover that Joseph, before whom they bowed, was the exalted Prime Minister in Egypt with authority, fame and wealth. Out of hatred and jealousy, the brothers of Joseph had sold him into slavery. They had attempted to kill him in order to destroy his destiny. But God overruled their plan and turned it into a stepping stone to honour and exaltation for the righteous Joseph. Joseph had a different heart. It was a heart of kindness. Instead of paying evil with evil, he comforted his trembling and remorseful brothers and promised to nourish them. What type of heart do you have? Do you show kindness to others? Do you retaliate or forgive when offended? “There are two marks of a Christian: giving and forgiving,” said Martin Luther King Jr. The kind heart that forgives and forgets offences only comes through the new birth experience.

Challenge: Salvation in Christ provides a kind heart.
Prayer: Lord, let your kindness flow in my heart, in Jesus’ name.
Quote: What type of heart do you have?
