Time of year

As I ponder the upcoming Holiday season I have visions of children dreaming of the great feast on Thanksgiving Day. Families gathering together to enjoy one another and the day of thanks. I see visions of backyard football games, people watching the Macy's parade...but then I see a vision that shocks me back into reality. A reality that a lot of parents and children will be facing on these wonderful days of celebration of an empty table and a bare Christmas tree. On the day that we give thanks to our heavenly Father for all He has done for us. Then on the day we celebrate the Birth of our Lord and Savior many will not be thankful or in a celebratory mood. I am reminded in John 12:3-8 When Mary annointed our Lord's feet with expensive oil and Judas in essence declared it a waste. He believed the oil should have been sold to raise money for the poor. 7 Jesus answered, “Leave her alone; she has kept it for the day of My burial.8 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me.”...I am also reminded of Scrooges words from Dickinson's A Christmal Carol...Aren't there any workhouses or poor houses left. When he was told that many would not rather go to the poor houses, Scrooge replied well then let them die and decrease the surplus population. Today's poor houses and workhouses are our shelters and yes many do a good job. But also there are many dangers for men, women and children in them. You see they are run by secular organizations and receive government funding. Because of this there are basically no screening of whom they accept in. As a result many do not feel safe in these places...

I am also reminded of what Jesus said in Matthew 25:40... what you have done to the least of these my brethren you also have done unto me....

If you are reading this and you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior I ask that you would just ask Him into your heart today with this simple prayer: Jesus, I am a sinner and ask you to forgive me of all my sin. Please come into my heart as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Jesus for forgiving my sins and saving my soul. I pray this to our Heavenly Father in your precious name...amen.

 

 Welcome to the family of God and may He richly bless you in all you do.
