Wake Up

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep….”Romans 13:11a

I must be honest with you Ladies and Gentlemen. These last few weeks have been rough for me.  For instance, my children have been dealing with various things in school that concern me; my wife is having some back pains, residents in my facility are passing away too soon in my option.  At the end of the day our scripture this morning gives me hope.  The reason it gives me hope centers on a time when all these things I just mentioned will be no more.  I don’t know about you but I can’t wait until that happens.

In the meantime, it is time for us to wake up and be about the business of helping others without expecting anything in return. This week we celebrated Christmas and so many people came together to exchange gifts. I would like to challenge you at this moment to give someone these 7 gifts.

1 The Gift of your Time

  1. The Gift of Encouraging words
  2. The Gift of Honesty
  3. The Gift of Compassion
  4. The Gift of Love.
  5. The Gift of Patience
  6. The Gift of Integrity

I leave you with this quote:

Actions prove who a person is words just prove who they want to be.


Prayer: Lord, thank you for every good and perfect gift you have bestowed upon us. Help us Lord to show these 7 gifts in our everyday life. Wake us up to change.  Amen.
