Jesus Cared for His Loved Ones and So Can You
Some of the most touching moments of Jesus Christ’s ministry involved His family and close friends. This Christmas, we can honor the birth of Jesus Christ by following His loving example of serving those who matter most in our lives.
THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Leave an anonymous gift for a family member.
Plan a special Christmas Eve program with your family and friends.
Take a moment to enter all of your friends’ birthdays into your mobile device. Then make a point to wish them well on their special day.
OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
Go around the dinner table tonight and tell each person why he or she is loved.
Text an old friend who’s been on your mind lately.
Send a handwritten note to someone.
Protect someone’s good name. Don’t gossip.
Try to be a better listener. Make eye contact, ask questions, and don’t just wait for your turn to talk.
Help a friend who is going through a rough time by offering to make him or her food, helping around the house, or just taking time to listen.
