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!

  6. I feel like I should post this on my fridge. It’s brilliant. What a reminder that it isn’t the monetary things that matter in gift giving and godliness.
