May you all have a blessed and holy celebration of our Lord’s birth.
Let us all remember..
..this day is not about the gifts we give to each other, nor the gifts we receive from each other..but rather, the one who was born unto this world..who gave the gift of eternal life to us all.
Truly, the greatest gift we could ever give to our fellow man is His message of truth, our love, our time, hope and charity.
All of which are intangible, yet possess more intrinsic value than any tangible gift we could ever give or receive.
If you are reading this and there is someone in your life that hurt you in the past, forgive them. From your forgiveness, will come true healing. If there is someone you have not talked to in quite some time because you feel they owe you an apology..be the bigger person. Mend the bridge and give them a call. Life is too short to hold on to past transgressions. Remember, we are instructed to ‘..forgive our brother, seven times seventy..’
To all of our readers of other faiths/religions, may you all have peace, love and joy in your lives. I assure you, we pray for you all. We pray for your families, your children, your nations and your leaders. We love you all.
Please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. Please pray for their safety and security. Please pray that their blows be lessened, their chains be loosened and their spirits set free…
And on this day, I ask all Christians:
Please take a moment to stand in front of a mirror.. look deep into your own eyes, your own heart and your own soul..and ask yourself this question:
‘..Am I truly my brother’s keeper?..’
