Happy Birthday Jesus

I came to the dinner table earlier last week with a World Vision gift catalog. Our activity for the evening was to pick out a birthday gift for Jesus. Matthew 25:40 says, "Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me."

We glanced through each page and decided on a fishing kit for a family. I could tell by Bella's demeanor that she wasn't fully satisfied with just a fishing kit. She wanted to do more.

The next details are a little fuzzy, but soon there were piggy banks turned upside down and three little kids counting out money to buy another gift.


They decided on medicine for sick children.

I can't say how proud and pleased I was to see their generous hearts. They experienced the joy of giving that night.
