In The Spirit Of Christmas
Just a simple sip of water
If it’s offered in His Name
Is recorded as an act of love
In God’s Heavenly domain.
Those random acts of kindness
Performed without a reason…
Giving with no thought of gain
Celebrate the Christmas season
I’ve read where a policeman
Compassion leading him to choose
To bless a barefoot homeless man
With a brand new pair of shoes
A visit to a nursing home…
Time for those shut in by age
Or illness is a golden deed
Surely written on God’s page.
What of the mentally impaired…
The handicapped of mind?
In their eyes a Merry Christmas
And a smile’s considered kind.
The jails contain a multitude
Of people needing cheer.
A simple Christmas song and prayer
Could really work a wonder here.
The widow and the orphan child
Are not to be neglected.
Remember some feel so alone…
Despondent and dejected.
The Salvation Army rings a bell…
Red kettles are set out.
Just a handful of your pocket change
Could feed someone, no doubt.
Be charitable this holy time…
Be quick to bless someone.
Think of the Father’s Christmas gift…
He gave the world His Son!
~~Dedicated to Rich~~
~~My inspiration for this came from watching
one of Rich's amazing Christmas videos.~~
For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life.
Then shall the King say unto them
on his right hand, Come, ye blessed
of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared
for you from the foundation of the world:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick,
and ye visited me: I was in prison,
and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him,
saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred,
and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in?
or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison,
and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
And if you give even a cup of cold water
to one of the least of my followers, you will
surely be rewarded."
