Simple {Meaningful} Ways to Celebrate CHRISTmas…Day 9

by Cathy Baker

{ Day 9 }

Today, remember the bell ringers and red bucket holders. When you pass by the Salvation Army volunteers, make eye contact. Thank them for braving the cold and consider asking them if they would like a cup of coffee or cocoa…and then make your way to a nearby coffee shop or McD’s. 

When delivering their treat, ask if there’s a specific way you can be praying for them this Christmas season. If time allows, pray with them on the spot.

Joining the $5.00 Experiment

 
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” 
-Mother Teresa

Care to join me for a little experiment this week? If so, let’s go! 

  • Purchase a 5.00 gift card of your choice (mine will be Starbucks)
  • Pray, asking God to lead us to a person of His choosing.
  • When you sense you’ve found the right person, share it with him/her and ask how you can pray for them.  

A $5.00 gift card may not seem like much but when purchased with love and prayer in mind, it becomes a priceless gift in the hand of the receiver.
 
I’d love to hear how God blesses your efforts in sharing with a stranger this week! 

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not
reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7
