OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS WEDNESDAY 2ND MAY 2018: BE KIND
MEMORISE: But love ye your enemies, and do
good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the
unthankful and to the evil. Luke 6:35
Please read: Ephesians 4:31-32
As a child of God, it is expected that you should be kind to everyone around you regardless of
their tribe, culture, religion, colour or orientation.
You must never be wicked or look down on anybody. You must always look out for ways to be of help to people who need your assistance.
When the Lord Jesus was on earth, it was never
recorded that He was unkind to anyone. We are
supposed to look up to Jesus Christ and model our life after His own. This means that if He was kind to everyone, we also have to be kind to everyone too.
When you see an elderly person
struggling with carrying something heavy, kindness will make you offer to assist such a
person with what they are carrying.
Another reason why it is important to be kind at all times is because you may actually
unknowingly perform an act of kindness towards
an angel or God Himself. Abraham is a classic example of someone who was kind to strangers and got rewarded with his greatest heart desire – a son. Be kind
Be kind to everyone, you don’t know who might be fighting an internal battle and your act of
kindness will make his/her life worth living.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 3-5
1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.
2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who died on the cross?
3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?
4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from known sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
