Christmas! A time to give. A time to share.
Even the most unlikely person can surprise you during the Christmas season. They reach out to help sweeten the life of another, bringing joy to themselves as well as to the recipient. It can be a gift; a smile; a hug or just spending time with another person. There is no need for a great price tag or commitment. Just a sincere desire to change somebody’s life for the better.
It’s too bad that the Christmas spirit does not last throughout the year. What a difference we could make to our world.
Thank God for Jesus! He is the risen that we celebrate the Christmas season; celebrating His birth while delighting in the sheer joy of sharing, and making others feel cherished.
Lives these days can be ultra busy, leaving little time or energy for others, but please remember that we all need Christmas. It reminds us of how good we can be. Spare a moment to help someone with a gift: It might be something pretty or valuable; it could be a smile; it might be that you will spend time with a lonely neighbor or family member, however you do it spread God’s love this Christmas. You’ll be so glad you did.
