It was cold and I was on my way into the bank to get some cash. Four young people sat huddled by the door waiting for a bus that comes just down the street. As I was getting my cash out, it seemed to me I was being prompted to give them some money. I sent up a little prayer and said Lord, am I hearing you? The prompting was even stronger so I took an extra $20 out.
As I stepped out the door of the bank, I stopped and ask them if they could tell me the true meaning of Christmas. One young man, thought a minute, and said Family..being with your family?? I said that's a good answer, but not the right one.
I'll give you a hint. It's in the word CHRISTMAS". His eyes lit up, and he said... Oh yeah. The night Christ was born. I said YES, that's the right answer. The most important birth of all time. Now here's $20 go next door to Starbucks and get all of you a nice hot drink before the bus comes and don't forget to share what the true meaning of Christmas is..
What smiles and thanks you I got as they headed to Starbucks......I glad I listened to the prompting of the Lord and planted a few seeds. Who knows who might come along in each of their lives and water, and somewhere down the road...someone just might reap a harvest.
