There are a lot of people hurting right now and the holidays are making it all the more difficult this year.
Today I want to ask the question: what is something we can do to be Christ this Christmas?
Is there someone you know who will be alone this Christmas that you can call, send a letter or gift to let them know that you are thinking about them?
Is there someone you know who is struggling financially who could use a gift card to help with groceries, a power bill, gas for their car, or to help buy Christmas gifts for their children?
Is there someone you know who is sick, whose family could use some encouragement, a note, a call, freshly baked goodies, or a small gift to show you care?
Is there a small business that is being affected by the Covid shutdowns that you could find something they sell that you could purchase as a Christmas gift for someone you love?
Is there a teacher struggling to figure out ways to teach their students online who could use a note of encouragement and appreciation?
This Christmas, I want to encourage you to find someone who could use some encouragement and ask the Lord to show you how you can be the hands and feet of Jesus to them in this difficult season.
Maybe, rather than this Christmas being remembered as just another chaotic day in the year 2020, this Christmas can be remembered as the day the hands and feet of Jesus Christ broke through the loneliness, pain, and chaos to bring healing, hope, peace, and love to the world.
