Nahum 1:7. The Lord is good indeed, he is a fortress in time of distress, and he protects those who seek refuge in him.

Some consider the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is stressful or depressing. Their eyes and hearts are on the world. They think they should have the advertised products they see. They think they must give a lot of expensive gifts. They are bombarded with give here and give there. The best gift we can give someone is the gift of our time. This time we give should be with our full attention to the person we are giving it to. Our question is not what we are giving to the people around us. Our question is what are we giving to Jesus? Are we so busy in this season that we have shortened our prayer, meditation and/or Bible study time? Are we so busy shopping or going to parties that we have no time to visit the sick? Let us remember our priorities while we give and fellowship with those around us.
