Scripture: The barbarous people shewed us no little kindness. – Acts 28:2
Mornings with God Devotional 10 September 2022 Message
God’s promises never fail. Not one person was lost on the ship that bore Paul. They were saved for his sake. The men were not landed in a very easy and graceful way, but every one of them got ashore safely.
There is a great deal of human tenderness in this world, even among rude people and those who do not know Christ. Paul’s company received “no common kindness” from the people on the island, though these were barbarians.
Suffering touches hearts everywhere, making all kin. Nobleness of character reveals itself in all circumstances.
Through all the terrible voyage Paul’s rare personality shone out. Here on the island we find him gathering sticks for the fire. One of Christ’s promises to the disciples was that if they took up serpents they should not be hurt. This was fulfilled to Paul.
If in doing our duty we are required to be among things that are dangerous, we may trust God and not be afraid. Nothing can harm us if we are doing God’s will.
