A very short X'mas story....

A young man in his late twenties was listening to some sweet Christmas melodies where all of a sudden, he felt lonely and yearned for a warm X'mas with friends and family back home. He was away far from home and had no friends in his adopted alien country. He watched with envy on folks who were jolly and busy buying X'mas presents and wrapping gifts, dressing up for X'mas eve , X'mas party, X'mas dinner and attending church's services with their friends and families. As 'silent night, holy night' played, he felt even sadder  on a Christmas eve.
Then, an insight came to him in the form of a thought that God is with him all alone and he's not lonely.


The above story is to illustrate that there's always a door open for us in our darkest times as God is always with us, if you let your door opens to Him. Thus, let's spread some Christmas cheers and love to our friends, families and the needy ones. Shower your gift of love to them on this special occasion as how our Lord Jesus Christ  did to us. Afterall, the biggest Gift we receive daily is Him. Thus, let's give ! Do some charities to the needy ones and let them know that God is with them and it's Christmas! Let the melody of Jingle Bells play in their lives!



Merry Christmas to you and family!!

  6. Eugene - bro, this is a good time to show that we cared. The meaning of giving presents is actually reminding about Jesus himself who gave us the greatest Gift. Let's give with care regardless if the gift is cheap or expensive.

  18. There is something abt Xmas that makes it a grand occasion for all unlike other major religious festivals which r inclined to b more limited in its impact. perhaps it is the commercial aspect of it .. the buying of presents etc.

    I was in Penang attending a Xmas service being preached to by CM Lim Guan Eng of all people. It really made me question my values... everybody was so well behaved and nice. There was no beating the queue for free food etc.
