Doing deeds of thoughtful kindness without being asked

The story of the woman of Shunem feeding and building a room on her house for the prophet Elisha is a shining example of how going the extra mile to bless others can create much happiness in all aspects of life, especially in the home. The prophets were committed to “go without” for the purpose of spreading the gospel, yet we know that food and a place to rest is necessary for all. Here we see that a thoughtful deed of kindness is simply providing basic needs for someone when they most need it (tired, hungry, sad, etc.). 

2 Kings4:8 And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where [was] a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And [so] it was, [that] as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread.  

 4:9 And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this [is] an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually.  

 4:10 Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither.  

 4:11 And it fell on a day, that he came thither, and he turned into the chamber, and lay there.
