Well, there is only a few more days left before Christmas and most of us are very busy trying to finish all of our shopping. As you look at your shopping list, are you missing anyone from your list. No, I am not talking about your family, friends or co-workers. I am talking about the Lord. What are you going to give to the Lord this year?
In James 1:22-25 we read, “22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”
The greatest gift that we can give to the Lord this year is our heart. Be “doers of the word” by living out God’s Word to all around you. Show people love. Show people compassion. Don’t be so quick to criticize, but rather show kindness. Live out God’s Word in all you say, all you do, what you speak. That is the only gift that He has ever wanted.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
