I like to share this story because this family lives the way Jesus called us to live when he said, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). As a family, they embody the generosity of spirit that we so often talk about but may so rarely witness. They understand that together, they can make a difference in a person’s life by binding together as one.
During this Christmas season, I encourage you to embody the generosity of spirit that this family has attempted to represent in their lives. That does not mean that I am asking you to cook meals for others or spend your Christmas Eve passing out gifts to those who cannot afford to purchase them on their own. Instead, I simply encourage you to reflect on how much we have to be thankful for and not let it pass you by in a fleeting moment without allowing yourself to share that moment with others.
