The Matters of the Heart

(my morning reading)… Christmas is a very important time of year. It’s a time of year when the whole world is hearing the message of the birth of Jesus. It’s a time when people are tenderhearted…the perfect time to plant seeds of love in the lives of those you meet.

Sometimes those seeds may just take the form of a kind word in the middle of rush hour shopping. Other times, you may get the opportunity to pray and minister to someone. But whatever the situation, keep a sharp eye out for even the smallest chance to assist people.


I’ve had some outstanding experiences giving a few dollars to someone in need. As they are taking the money, I tell them, “This money is from the Lord Jesus Christ. I serve him. He is the one who instructed me to help you.”


It’s amazing how many people are ready to hear what you have to say when you say it in love. They’re starved for someone to really care. Be that someone this Christmas season. Spread the Word about the peace that’s available in Jesus. Tell about his goodwill toward men.


Who know how many of those small seeds may one day take root and bring one more precious person into the glorious kingdom of God.


This is something good to practice every day of the year and not just during the Christmas holiday. But, right here is a good place to start.


Have an awesome day today on purpose!
