Christmas Gift SuggestionsChristmas Gift Suggestions

To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

~Proverbs 3:27-28~
“Do not withhold good
From those to whom it is due,
When it is in your power to act.”

Or as it says in The Message . . .
“Never walk away from someone who deserves help.
Your hand is God’s hand for that person.
Don’t tell your neighbor ‘Maybe some other time’
Or ‘Try me tomorrow.'”

These words remind me that the most important gifts
we can share with each other can’t be wrapped & placed under a tree.
Let’s not be stingy but give freely from our hearts—at Christmas time and all the year through.

I’ll be posting Christmas quotes & Scriptures every day this week, so I hope to “see” you again soon.

Thanks for stopping by today. Blessings, friends!

Scripture graphics

He is the radiance of the glory of God & the exact imprint of His nature. ~Hebrews 1:3~

This seemed a fitting Scripture for the first day of Advent, the season where we celebrate God sending us His beautiful Son!

Here’s how Hebrews 1 sounds from The Message:

By his Son, God created the world in the beginning,
And it will all belong to the Son at the end.
This Son perfectly mirrors God,
  And is stamped with God’s nature.
He holds everything together by what He says—
Powerful words!

And I love these words from the folks at Desiring God about His Radiance:

“The glory of God is the holiness of God put on display. That is, it is the infinite worth of God made manifest.

When the holiness of God fills the earth for people to see, it is called glory. God’s glory is the radiance of his holiness.

It is the out-streaming of his infinite value. And when it streams out, it is seen as beautiful and great.

It separates God from all that is common—like the rarest and most perfect diamond in the world.”

What can I add to those words but —Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

Thanks for stopping by today. Blessings, friends!
