The Kindness of David
2 Sam.9:1; 10:1-2
All are sent not all have went Why haven’t you gone yet? He doesn’t like you, we don’t know where is at, there is job here, we love you We are sent to pick up sister? I’m not ready, don’t know directions, have no gas, don’t want too I’m so glad David’s servants were not Christians Our message is one of kindness not war We are not Bruce Wallis trying to start a fight Don’t send mixed signals. We are not sales people What’s God’s message? You will be affected by response but you’re not responsible There is joy when one person gets saved, rejection will cut you It’s not your job to start war when you get rejected or bring fire down When they reject you, they reject God…why are you persecuting Me?
They both had dads that knew David Faith is not in your DNA. It’s not enough for your dad to know God. Your kids will ask why? God wants to be with you like He was with your parents. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob God will fulfill the dreams your parents had (Dream center, Lakewood church) They both had dads who died God wants to show kindness to you in the time of your crisis Don’t allow your crisis to make you bitter like the thief on the cross Jesus is in your crisis. Fire killed one group and another it liberated them Their response to kindness affected their relationship with David When you reject God’s love you will see Him as an enemy Your eyes are on your feet instead of His face
