II Samuel 2:5‭-‬6 NKJV So David sent messengers to the men of Jabesh Gilead, and said to them, “You are blessed of the Lord , for you have shown this kindness to your Lord, to Saul, and have buried him. And now may the Lord show kindness and truth to you. I also will repay you this kindness, because you have done this thing.

The men of Jabesh Gilead were blessed by God because they showed kindness to Saul.

Showing kindness is something we can always control. At any point in our lives, we can show kindness. We can send a text to check up on someone. We can open the door for someone else. We can compliment someone’s clothes or shoes. We can pay for someone’s meal or groceries.

Our kindness activates a principle of God. When we’re kind to others, God is kind to us (Ephesians 6:8).
