"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, "
Give the gift of joy this holiday season. A smile, a hug, a simply stated, "Merry Christmas" to all you meet. How lonely and horrendous this time of year can be for some individuals' paths we cross each day. Sadly, we are unaware of these deep rooted pains as most regard these hindrances as skeletons in their closets. After all, who can share with the world the pain from another time, another place that may affect his/her Christmas disposition? But we as servants of Christ can reach out and offer solace if only for a moment in time.
No one is exempt from life's perils of trials and tribulations. We are all on some dimension- some level of questioning, not understanding why we should have this affliction present in our life today. Yet, isn't it the people we meet each day that offer a spark of joy if only for a moment, allowing us to lay cares to the wayside? How unaware we are that we have this affect on others, and how unaware they are concerning the affect on us!
The Bible says to be the spirit of love, peace, kindness, patience, goodness, and faithfullness. Who can you bring these emotions to this Holiday Season? Who can you share your love and kindness with? Bring joy to others today! Each place you step, each smile you share, each hand you extend, may it be Christ guiding, you offering a glimpse of happiness to another's soul.
