Scripture

1 Chronicles 19

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What kind gesture did David make toward Hanun, the new king of Ammon? What did Hanun do? How did David respond? What happened?

Application

Do I understand that a foolish decision and an insulting response to a kind gesture can have an impact on other people besides myself?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Keep me from responding to kindness with rudeness and cruelty. Give me a heart of compassion and a mind of wisdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz (Anabelle)
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Martin & Patricia Regueiro
  • Daryl & Joyce Roech & family
  • Chris & DeAnn Smith (Sasha, Noah, Gavin, Natalie
  • Ross Stoltey
