The Christmas season gets many of us thinking about the gifts we can buy to share others that we care. We spend time trying to choose the perfect gift. We want others to like and use the gifts that we give. Even though it can be fun to pick out and give gifts, we can also give more than just material things!
When we want to help others, we can also give gifts of compassion and empathy. We can give to those we love by helping to carry their burdens. God is always prepared to help us carry our burdents. We can show God's love by calling on Him to give us strength to help others carry their burdens. We can show God's love and our love for others as we help to carry their burdens!
Give the gift of caring and helping to carry others' burdens!
Thank You for helping to carry my burdens. Help me to show compassion and to assist in carrying others' burdens. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
