December 2019 – During this holiday season, the spirit of Christmas is all around us! The community becomes more giving, more caring, and increasingly more kind. Watch for random acts of kindness all around, in parking lots, at the mall, or in line at the grocery store. The warmth, compassion, and kindness is evident at every turn.
Take a moment to reflect on the story of the three kings who followed the rising star to baby Jesus in Bethlehem. The Bible tells us that when they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy! When they went into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshipped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.
Much like the kindness of the three wise men, when we give in the presence of Christ, we too are filled with joy – we discover that He is the greatest blessing ever given to us, and we rejoice in giving and in paying homage to Him.
