So we did. And God was faithful to bring a family in need to our attention. We were able to buy for three family members. The boys learned so much from this act of service. (Setting aside your own desires in the toy aisle is quite an act of humility for a little boy!) This isn’t something they could have gathered from me reading to them during a breakfast devotional. I am so thankful to the Lord for allowing them this experience. I pray this seed of service and giving will continue to grow in their heart.
Angel Tree ministries is a common gift-giving program this time of year and is made readily available at mall’s and local retailers. Angel Tee is a Prison Fellowship program that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. In most cases, local church volunteers purchase and deliver gifts and the Gospel to children in the name of their prisoner-parent. The deadline for purchasing gifts is tomorrow, actually. Where has the time gone? Click here for more details.
I’d love to hear of similar things you are doing with your family this Christmas…
