Day 5 - Let Kindness Be a Way
“But the Lord was with Joseph and extended kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the warden of the prison.” Genesis 39:21
Meditate or Reflect
Kindness can be the smallest of gestures or the grandest of actions. The translation of kindness that we see in the Bible means pleasant, gracious, or serviceable. Whether you have received a kindness or given a kindness, you are befriending another soul. We learn that this is the way of Jesus when He demonstrates service to others by washing the disciple’s feet (John 13: 5-20). And we see it in our Scripture for today from Genesis, while Joseph was in prison God extended kindness to Joseph by leading him to find favor with the warden. But, look at God – He didn’t just extend kindness to Joseph, He was with him. An essential feature of kindness is to be with or to befriend another, even for a brief moment. Reflect on the kindness of God. Take a breath, and consider the ways He has been with you and extended you kindness.
