We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:9
If you had to choose what you thought was the ultimate act of love what would you say? What comes to mind for me is giving a body organ to a dying family member, friend, or stranger. Perhaps it would be taking a bullet. Adopting a baby into your family is one I think of as it is totally unselfish. You can probably think of others.
Christmas is a time of year where love and giving seem to come to the forefront of life. Many have nothing to give. It is not about giving materially but of being able to receive.
God gave us the ultimate gift of His son and in turn Jesus gave His life for our sins.
Are you prepared to receive the gift of eternal life? We should think of giving, love, and Jesus around the clock not just on December 25. Is your joy in Him?
PRAYER: Thanks so much for the gifts you gave so we might have abundant life. Help me to think of ways to give to others in a sacrificial way all year round. In Jesus' name. Amen.
