WORD&POWER for TODAY
REMEMBER, AND HONOUR THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED YOU
““But show kindness to the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be among those who eat at your table, for so they came to me when I fled from Absalom your brother.” I Kings 2:7 NKJV
This is a new month, you have being praying, fasting and offering sacrifices; I assume you can spend this month to remember and honor those who have helped you in the past. Think of the roles some people played in your past, that were it not for them, you probably would not be here.
Barzillai was a great man, who made provisions available to King David at Mahanaim when Absalom was after his life. When the battle was over, Barzillai, though eighty years old, still walked a long way to welcome the king back into the kingdom. That showed honor to the king, and the kings soul was refreshed and really lifted in those horrible days. The difficulties some people are presently facing in their lives is due to their ungrateful attitude towards those who have helped them in the past. The Word of GOD says; “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do so.” Proverbs 3:27 NKJV.
David asked King Solomon to make sure the children of Barzillai join those who eat from his table, because of what their father did to him in his days of distress. What have you done, or are you planning to do for those who once helped you? May be they gave you a cup of cold water when you were dying of thirst. Or a shelter over your head in a foreign land. They may even have rescued you from being killed by some forces. What ever good someone has done for you, dont wait for GOD to reward them! Do your best to say ‘thank you’ no matter how small you may want to start. Show them that you have not forgotten their good deeds. Show gratitude to them, or to their children, if you can. Even GOD will ensure good never departs from you, if you do that.
