His Sovereign rule

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
(Luke 6:36-38)

Two things which particularly strike me about this passage is how the Father takes note of everything we do, and how He is absolutely Sovereign over all: He takes note of our life, what we do, the thoughts and intents of our heart, and He moves people to help us, even though they may not be aware of it, or may not even know Him. It shows His Sovereign rule over the earth, even over the devil and his children.
