Time of prayer, reflection

-A A +A

Sunday, December 22, 2013

THE holidays provide a much needed break from a busy year. Besides grabbing the opportunity to rest and relax, people are also into the spirit of generosity.

But there’s a saying that goes, “we can only give what we have.” Indeed, besides giving out material gifts for our family and friends, having a kind and good heart during this season is a huge plus factor to consider. How can one give cheerfully if he himself is lacking of cheer?

There is nothing more uninspiring than Christmas turning into a huge commercial event, rather than a celebration of Christ’s birth and of life itself. So take the time to slow things down and reflect upon the things that could make one’s soul at peace.

Pray and make this season meaningful by giving yourself a hard look in the heart. When it comes to giving, authentic generosity should only be a byproduct of love.
