Do you think the people showed the Lord and His disciples much hospitality? The reason the disciples had to pluck the ears of corn on the Sabbath day was because they were hungry. They didn’t have enough to eat, and this was God’s provision for the poor people (Deuteronomy 23:2525When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbor, then thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt not move a sickle unto thy neighbor's standing corn. (Deuteronomy 23:25)). The Creator of all things, “though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor” (2 Corinthians 8:99For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)).
Before you make an important decision, do you pray about it? The Lord was about to choose twelve apostles from among His disciples. He spent the entire night in prayer before making this choice. What an example for us to follow! We are to make our requests with thanksgiving to God for every matter on our hearts.
The Lord did things without partiality. He was kind to all who came to Him. The whole multitude sought to touch Him, and all that did were healed.
Not only were His works great, but His words were full of grace and truth. They went beyond what was written in the Old Testament. There, Israel was told to destroy their enemies. Now, His disciples were told to love their enemies and to do good, because God is kind even to the unthankful and to the evil. In fact, those who heard the words of the Lord and did them are compared to a house whose foundation was built on a rock that could not be moved.
How good it is to read the Bible and pray daily so that we can be unmovable in the storms of life!
