...A Compelling Question for Sure
Most of us are familiar with the story of the Little Drummer Boy. He has a big heart and wants to honor the baby Jesus, but he doesn't have any fancy or expensive gifts to give. He does, however, have a special talent.
He plays the drums!
Ultimately, by being faithful, he alone is the one to bring comfort to the child with his music. Had he not given his gift or as the title suggests—fell asleep on the job—a divine appointment would have been missed.
Right now our nation is in turmoil. Some people are thrilled others terrified. Thoughts are on elections and government. Now more than ever, it is important for us to remember who the ultimate authority is. There is only ONE King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His Word and Great Commission do not shift or sink like sand. His truth is rock solid, yesterday, today, and forever.
Loving our neighbors as ourselves and giving of our treasure to help others, especially the 'little ones', the children Jesus so frequently mentions, is not a duty we can ignore. We must wake up, reach out our hands, open our hearts, homes, and, yes, even our pocketbooks to bring hope, healing, and help to women and children who have none.
Just like the drummer boy picked up his sticks, shouldered his drum, and played his special song for a baby in a manger, let us determine to do whatever it takes this Christmas to take up God's call to reach His children who are hungry, hurting, and homeless.
