Scripture for the sermon: Jeremiah 38:4-13
Title: Lessons from the Lesser knowns: Ebed-Melek
Scripture from New Testament: Matthew 25:31-40
Abstract: In Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff Richard Carlson writes, “Choose to be kind over being right and you’ll be right every time.” Holy Scripture is full of examples of “little things” of compassion and kindness. Jesus tells us by giving just a cup of cold water to someone who is thirsty we are actually giving it to Jesus himself.
Think of people who have done little things of compassion and kindness to you. There is a good chance they did not remember but you certainly did. Ebed-Melek challenges us to pad the ropesfor others and in doing so we fulfill the greatest command.
