Offering your gift

Daily reading: Matthew 2:1-12
Wednesday January 6, 2016

Focus passage: They entered the house and saw the child with Mary his mother.  Falling to their knees, they honored him.  Then they opened their treasure chests and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  Matthew 2:11

When the Magi final find the holy family they present their gifts.  Each and every day we have the opportunity to present our gifts to God.  We do when we allow the spiritual fruits of goodness, kindness, patience, self-control, gentleness, love, joy, and peace flow through us.  We do when we see someone in need and meet them in their need.  We do when we allow someone to minister to us in our own need.  Consider doing a random act of kindness today, pay it forward, find a need and lend a hand!

Prayer: God of epiphanies and a-ha moments, open my eyes to your presence today.  Amen.
