So I said to her, ‘Please give me a drink.’ She quickly lowered her jug from her shoulder and said, ‘Yes, have a drink, and I will water your camels, too!’ (Genesis 24:45-46, NLT)

Sometimes a simple act of kindness can be an answer to someone’s prayer.

Rebekah showed kindness…without hesitation, for a stranger, and, most notably, with a willingness to make a significant sacrifice (a camel can drink 30 gallons of water in 13 minutes!) in order to bless.

You could be an answer to someone’s prayer today. So could I. Let’s pay attention to those opportunities we have to show kindness today.
