"Freely you have received, freely give." Matthew 10:8
I, like many, have few needs,
and when i do, i purchase with speed.
So, if you were planning to shop for me this year,
here's what will bring the greatest pleasure and cheer.
Write me a note or send a letter,
sharing what you did for a hurting gal or fella.
If short on money, don't despair,
use some time to show another you care.
Can you do it, can you pass the test?
Can you give to those in need, and simply embrace the rest?
So much today is bought strictly in vain,
We spend time and money on things with no real gain.
Let's eliminate the rush of "keeping up with the Jones",
And concentrate on bringing glory to the One on the Throne.
Strength in NOT overindulging in a "want" list is required,
to defeat the commericalist thinking we've acquired.
God, help us remember everything belongs to You,
And to help care for all your children is what we need to do.
A little less for me and more for Thee,
will bring true joy and peace for CHRISTmas eve.
How excited i will be to see my note-filled CHRISTmas tree,
with kind/caring deeds and stories of those who believe...
JESUS IS THE REASON TO CELEBRATE ~ HIS LOVE FOR YOU AND ME!
THANKS BE TO GOD!
"You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God." 2 Corinthians 9:11
have a looking-out-for-others filled day!
