Memory verse: And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  Matthew 25:40

                It’s not often that we come across people who are truly looking out for the lowly, for the “rag pickers” in this world. Amaka Kumar is one of those people.

                We get so caught up in our privileged lives and first-world problems that it’s pretty easy to forget that there are those who are fighting for their next meal. But this is a need that Kumar saw when he sat down for dinner at a hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.

                After a long day of meetings, he placed his order. As his dinner arrived at the table, he saw a tiny pair of eyes peering through the window. He noticed they were the eyes of a little rag picker who was just salivating over the exquisite food being served to each of the tables.

                Kumar waved for the boy to come in, so he walked through the doors with his little sister by his side. He asked them what they would want to eat, and the little boy pointed at Kumar’s plate, so he ordered them the same thing.

                As the steaming food came out, the boy could hardly contain himself. He was so excited for the feast set before him!

                However, his wise little sister held his hand back, indicating that she wanted them to wash their hands first.

                After they washed their hands, they quietly cleaned their plates in complete contentment. When they finished, they got up, looked at Kumar and left the restaurant. Kumar hadn’t even touched his food by the time they were done. He already felt full. The looks on their faces filled him with the sustenance he needed.

                Afterward, he slowly finished his own meal and asked for the bill. When he got back to the table, he was shocked to see what was on it.

                There was no dollar amount on the bill, but a message.

                When he saw it, tears welled up in his eyes. It read: “We don’t have a machine that can bill humanity. May good happen to you.”

                How utterly amazing is that? Thanks, Amaka, for teaching us that there’s no dollar amount on kindness.

                Go out today showing kindness.

Quote: When you show a little kindness it comes back to you in return; such is the law of life.

Prophetic Word: May your good works and kind heart secure you a place in the secret dwelling place of the Almighty, in Jesus name.

Prayer point:

1) Lord, help me show kindness to all I meet my way, in Jesus name.

2) O Lord my father, destroy every selfish attitude in my heart today, in Jesus name.
