On Mother’s Day we focus all of our attention on our Mothers, recalling and remembering how much they struggled to raise us. Lovingly we shower gifts on them, purchase cards that describe her many sacrifices for us and the unending care she gave to us. She deserves all of the attention and recognition we can give her.
On Father’s Day, we turn our thoughts to him – what he has done for us and express our gratitude for the time he spent with us. We recall his efforts to teach us to throw a ball, catch a pass, cast a fishing line or attend a special event. He, too, deserves all the attention and recognition we can give him.
We also give recognition and attention to our Grandparents, to brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles and friends and relatives on their special days.
But what will we do that is really special or unique to show our appreciation and gratitude for Christ on His day this year?
Will there be an envelope under the tree with a special love-offering that recognizes His importance in our lives? Will it match the amount we gave others?
Will we sacrifice some of our time to show God’s love by being with those who would otherwise be alone and lonely on His day?
Will we share a meal with someone who is hungry? Give some clothes to those who are cold and have little? Spend time reading His story to children?
“In as much as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto Me!”
Prayer: Take Your peace from us Father, until and unless we show others Your love on Your day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Matthew 25:40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
