WHILE YOU ARE CELEBRATING WITH FOOD, PRESENTS AND FAMILY TODAY PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOTHING AND NO ONE TODAY AS WELL AS WELL AS EVERYDAY!
Luke 14:12-14 He said also to the one who had invited him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
SO…DO YOU STAND UP TO HIS MEASURE? DO YOU DO HIS GOOD WORKS? TODAY OF ALL DAYS THE BEST WAY TO CELEBRATE IS TO HONOR HIM WITH WHAT HE WOULD HAVE DONE?
