When David came to Mahamaim, Shobi , son of Nahash from Rabah of the Ammonites, and Makir, son of Ammiel from LoDebar, and Barzillai, the Gileadite, from Rogelim, brought bedding and bowls and articles of pottery. They also brought wheat and barley, flour and roasted grain, beans and lentils, honey and curds, sheep and cheese from cows milk for David and his people to eat. For they said, “The people have become hungry and tired and thirsty in the desert” (2 Samuel 17:27-29)
The kindness of Shobi, Makir and Barzillai were outstanding remembering everything for David and his men’s comfort. Nothing was too much trouble. Do we go the ‘extra mile’ when we see a need? Do we show kindness to others?
