Christmas is nearly here – and all the stuff that goes with it. If you’re like us, the tree is up, the lights are on, and what’s for dinner is being planned.
But what am I doing to prepare my heart?
It may be only a week until Christmas day, but it’s never too late to:
pick up a bible and begin to read Luke,
pray for the people you might not have had time to send cards to,
pray for the Posties,
the shop assistants,
the families of people who are working long hours right now,
Give donations to organisations who will feed and clothe families this Christmas,
pray for phone counsellors and Crisis Care
for your pastor, community leaders and their families.
And how about popping a Christmas card in the mail box of your neighbour, as a way to introduce yourself and to share Jesus love.
Too late for Christmas preparations? Never.
May the Christ of Christmas fill your hearts this week and always.
