Darling Virtuous Daughters,
Would you like to give a gift really special this Christmas? Well, I have a challenge for you. It is a gift that you will give someone, yet they will never open it. It is the gift of Jesus' love!
First, ask the Lord to place the name of one person on your heart. Perhaps it will be a sibling with which you have had a strain in the relationship, and you can demonstrate the love of Christ on a daily basis to them. Or maybe a lost neighbor that needs to see and hear the good news of salvation. Or, for you younger girls, what about a friend that is not always nice to you – she might need extra grace and prayers.
Spend some time in prayer seeking the Lord’s direction, and have faith that He will give it to you. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” Proverbs 3: 5-6 We are to depend on Him for everything! Here is a verse to memorize and say to yourself while carrying out all that He has for you:
“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” Philippians 2:3&4
