Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Apparently, this is a passage Scrooge hadn't seen! Unfortunately, I fear this is also a passage many of the Father's children haven't taken very seriously. God set aside ways for his people to help the poor, the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow. So, at this time of the year when many of us are more aware that we need to help those less fortunate, let's also open our date books, diaries, and schedulers, then find a date next year to dedicate ourselves to generosity in a special way. Let's also ask the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with appreciation for God's generous gifts to us and commit to a life of generosity all year long. God wants generosity to be our lifestyle — our "Christyle" — always.

My Prayer...

I thank you for all your wonderful gifts of kindness and grace, dear Father and God. Please stir my heart to care for others as you do. Please help me keep that spirit of concern and generosity alive all year long and not just around Christmas time. In Jesus' name, I ask this. Amen.
