During the holidays it becomes very easy to become self absorbed. We are looking out for our own desires and wants. Perhaps its our kids and families that we put above all else. I want to challenge you this week, once each day to go out of your way to help another, to put someone elses needs and desires above your own. In Mathew we read: 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn’t do anything to help you?' Then he will answer, 'I assure you that when you haven't done it for one of the least of these, you haven't done it for me.'"
As you go out of your way for others this week, consider it working for the Lord to further his kingdom. I'm certain it will help your spirits too.
