King David attempted to show kindness to the Ammonites by sending his servants to console Hanun concerning the death of his father, the king. However, the Ammonites repaid their kindness with evil by humiliating David’s servants. As a result, war broke out, and Israel defeated Ammon and their hired help, the Arameans. Just as David’s servants were ambassadors to the king, we as believers, are ambassadors to King Jesus, and will often have evil returned for our kindess. Let’s not be discouraged or take revenge, but listen to and trust our King, who will heal, restore and fight for us!
