Thanksgiving Day starts the holiday season a couple short weeks from now. It is very easy to get caught up in what we think is expected of us instead of considering what the holidays should represent. I think it prudent the holiday season starts with Thanksgiving as it gives us a time to pause and reflect on what truly matters most. Here is photo of a list of those things I should be doing, not only during the holiday season but all year long. What captured my attention is the selflessness of the list and its outward focus.
I encourage you to spend time thinking of what each of these would require of you, and what little you would forfeit to make a difference. Other than item 4, none of these cost any money but would be appreciated, and of course number 5 is reserved for your spouse.
Yeshua Messiah said, “And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. (Matthew 10:42 NASB)”
It isn’t hard to make a difference if we make the time to stop, see others’ needs and care. They will be blessed and so will you.
Be present, be the light and be blessed,
