Stewardship Thought
December 5, 2021: "And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more is knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern wat is of value…"  -- Philippians 1:9-10

During the Christmas shopping season it is easy to get caught up in the frenzy of buying gifts. But, is that "gift" truly and expression of your love for the other person. Or, are you just fulfilling your "obligation to give them something? To grow in friendship with someone, you need to spend time with them, learn what is of value to them. Maybe this year, buy less "stuff" and spend more time with those you love.
