Then they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to David; and they gave him bread and he ate, and they let him drink water. And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs and two clusters of raisins. So when he had eaten, his strength came back to him; for he had eaten no bread nor drunk water for three days and three nights.
I Samuel 30:11‭-‬12 NKJV

When David and his army retutned to Ziklag, they discovered the Amalekites took their wives and children while they were gone. As they pursued the Amalekites, they saw a starving Egyptian in the field. They could have just passed him by and focused on the mission of retrieving their wives and children, but David sowed a seed of kindness.

Little did David know, the Egyptian was a servant to the Amalekites and told them exactly where they were located. They were able to kill the Amalekites and retrieve their wives and children.

If David would not have sowed a seed of kindness into the Egyptian’s life, he would not have known where his wives and valuables were located.

We never know how our seed of kindness will benefit us in return. It may return in the form of help, favor, wisdom, access, notoriety, or promotion. Even if no one sees your kindness, God sees your kindness and we have a promise from Him that whatever good any person does, the same goodness they will receive from the Lord (Ephesians 6:8).

Be a vessel for God and a light in the earth by sowing a seed of kindness and expect to reap a harvest from the kindness you sow.
