This is one of the busiest and most mixed up times of the year. People are hurrying about with great intensity to purchase the best Christmas gift possible for that special someone in their life.
But what if we paused for a second and considered the greatest gift ever given to mankind. What would that prompt in our own hearts as we consider others around us that are less fortunate? It would probably allow us to realize just how important the words were that Jesus spoke; "it is better to give than receive."
I would ask you to let's start by giving ourselves to the Lord. Allow God to use us to be a blessing to someone around us. Let's remember the words of Paul in Romans 12:1 and also the words of Jesus in Mark 9:41.
Give a cup of cold water to your neighbor this year. Merry Christmas!
