King Me Part 3 “Kingly Kindness”

King Me – Part 3

Kingly Kindness

We have more information on king ____________ than any other of the kings of Israel.

While running for his life, David makes an __________________ with a man named Jonathan and king Saul.

1 Samuel 24:20-22

20 I know that you will surely be king and that the kingdom of Israel will be established in your hands. 21 Now swear to me by the Lord that you will not kill off my descendants or wipe out my name from my father’s family.”

22 So David gave his oath to Saul. Then Saul returned home, but David and his men went up to the stronghold.

Many say we live in a culture when kindness is on the ________________.

Kindness can be _________________ or _______________.

Kings are not normally _________________ to be kind but followers of the King are _________________ to be kind…always.

  1. Kindness often flows from _______________________.
  2. 2 Samuel 9:1-3

  3. David and Mephibosheth

    David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”

    Now there was a servant of Saul’s household named Ziba. They summoned him to appear before David, and the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?”

    “At your service,” he replied.

    The king asked, “Is there no one still alive from the house of Saul to whom I can show God’s kindness?”

    Ziba answered the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan; he is lame in both feet.”

It was typical for a new king to ________________ the            relatives of the previous king.

We are to give kindness out of the __________________ of     kindness that has been given to us through Jesus.

With regard to kindness do you have a __________ face?

  1. Kindness is often initially _______________ or _________________.

2 Samuel 9:6-8

When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor.

David said, “Mephibosheth!”

“At your service,” he replied.

“Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”

Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?”

Why is this so?

  1. Because we think we need to ____________ the    kindness?
  2. Because we think we are not _______________ to receive the kindness?

Be both a _____________ and a _______________ of kindness.

  1. Kindness is not dependent on the ________________ nature.

Showing kindness to those who did not    “________________” it always got Jesus in trouble.

Campolo’s story is about _____________ ________________.

You and I will never be a _____________ but we serve          one…and are commanded to serve others with     kindness.
