Give And It Shall Be Given Unto You

Daniel and Kara Lee's reception was a highlight of the trip--and another opportunity to give perfect greetings! Have you noticed how often the simple act of giving a good-natured: “Merry Christmas!” makes it more of a “merry Christmas” for you yourself as well? Why? Because a cheerful greeting is one of the most basic forms of giving.

Last weekend our family was strengthened and encouraged at the IBLP Christmas Conference. So many “perfect greetings” were given. What an exchange of enthusiasm, gifts, talents and fellowship.

“And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect [readily generous to everyone who is around you], even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:47-48).

This Christmas, God bless us with the joy of giving!

Maybe Josiah will grow up to be an example of generosity as his parents are. God bless you Tim & Angie. It was wonderful to see you again. Clayton wrote a violin accompaniment for "We Three Kings" Thank you Don Richardson for sharing your testimony. It gives new meaning to missions.

    It was an amazing time! It was the first time I had heard Don Richardson speak! Gil Bates’s testimony and hearing of other things the Lord is doing in so many places, was inspiring. Thank you everyone who shared your musical tallent too. I was edified.
