1Samuel 17:17-18 (GNB) Proverbs 27:23 (NIV)
One day Jesse said to David, "Take a half-bushel of this roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread, and hurry with them to your brothers in the camp. And take these ten cheeses to the commanding officer. Find out how your brothers are getting along and bring back something to show that you saw them and that they are well. *Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds.


Author PhotoWhat do you think would have happened to the Israelite army if David's father had not sent him to check on the state of his brothers that very day? Many times, we may not realize the positive effects that our showing love and caring for others can have on their lives. Do not only care for others; train others to do the same, i.e., in the same was David was being trained by his father. God wants you to watch, pray, be loving, be caring and be proactive towards the state of others; especially those under you in your family, business or organization, etc. You are a father and a mother of many nations and God has blessed you to be a blessing.

When Joseph noticed the sad countenance of Pharaoh's butler and baker, he asked them what the matter was and then interpreted their dreams by God's help, Gen. 40:5-8. Joseph must have been doing the same daily for other prisoners too. At the time, Joseph did not realize that a dream he would interpret for a fellow prisoner would lead him to be positioned to provide strategies for global economic preservation. Genesis 41:57 (GNB) says, people came to Egypt from all over the world to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe every where. As David faithfully cared for his father's sheep, he similarly did not realize that God was preparing him to lead the entire nation of Israel. Your caring and showing love to others right now is preparing you and them for greater things in life and in God.

PRAYER FOCUS:
Pray for God's will to be done in the lives of those under you and receive His grace to be more loving and caring.
