Do you have a Gift to GIVE Today?
Sometimes, when we love someone, we feel we just can’t give them enough. We may even do without things we need ourselves. (Does this sound familiar?) I think most parents feel that way about their children. Love makes us generous.
However, giving generously is more than giving!
It anyone could have showered gifts on those He loved, it was Jesus Christ. But, He didn’t. He provided for their basic needs – he saw to it that they had shelter and enough to eat. He watched them counting coins when he could have filled their laps with riches.
Jesus gave something more precious and more lasting than gifts. He gave the understanding. He knew how hard it is to live in this world. He felt what others felt and couldn’t put into words. And… out of His understanding, He gave what people truly need, such as forgiveness.
The next time yo want to give a gift to someone you love, don’t worry about how much you can afford to spend or how big the present out to be. Consider, instead what generosity really means: ~ understanding. This is something each of us can afford to give – all the time.
When you feel you don’t understand in your own strength – remember, with the Holy Spirit you can understand all!
Think about who you can give your gift of understanding to today – and give freely!
Bless you everyone, have a wonderful day!
