The “glad tidings and great joy” that Jesus brought, and the gifts He gives, transcend economic barriers and earthly status. When it comes to God’s love, we’re all on the same level. One way we can reflect His love to our communities is to give graciously and continuously, just like He does for us.
Traces of this text can be easily seen in my journey with a God who consistently provides for me and my family beyond which we can ever ask or imagine.

At any time or any place, someone is praying. These are known as “expected prayers”—at church, before meals or during pastors’ visits.
