The Power of Awareness
“And David said, “Is there still anyone left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?””2 Samuel 9:1 ESV
Awareness of people is the first step toward making a difference in their lives.
One of the qualities I try to instill in other leaders is awareness. What was the barista’s name? Did you see that person’s countenance? Let’s hold the door for this single mom coming behind us.
You cannot minister to people you don’t see.
When David stepped into a place of widespread influence he immediately asked if there was anyone in Saul’s house to whom he could show kindness.
His eyes were open. He looked for ways to extend kindness. He was aware that he had something to offer, and he wanted to give honor to a family who was likely in fear and turmoil after King Saul’s death.
Today God will provide opportunities for you to minister to someone. Keep your eyes open- look for the opportunity and take advantage of it!
