The Upper Room Devotional For 29th November 2022
Jesus said, “The seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” – Matthew 13:23 (NIV)
When I think about bearing fruit for Christ, I remember a story I once heard on the news. At the drive-through window of a coffee shop, a customer spontaneously paid for the order of the next car in line. It was an act of pure kindness and generosity. When the next car reached the window and discovered that the person in front had already paid, they were so touched that they, in turn, paid for the order of the next person in line.
This chain of generosity continued for more than 200 people. Upon discovering that the person ahead had paid for their order, each customer was inspired to pay for the next person’s. The kindness was contagious. I imagine that the person who initiated this beautiful chain of love had no idea of the fruit that this one act of kindness would bear. This incident inspires me to obey God in faith and not worry so much about the outcome. I am convinced that when we obey Christ’s command to love others, it will bear fruit, even if we don’t personally see the results.
Dear God, help us to show spontaneous acts of love every day. Amen.
Someone who has shown me unexpected kindness
