Tis the Season. . .Singing, Sharing & Serving
'Tis the season. 'Tis the season for family gatherings but that's not all! If nothing else, this is a very busy time for most people.
Thanksgiving, for most folks, means family, food and for some, football on TV. And, of course, Christmas is just around the corner so that means shopping, running, etc. and especially, if you have children at home.
What's your big thing to do this time of the year?
Go shopping on Black Friday? Avoid shopping on Black Friday? Avoid people and traffic as much as possible?
Play Scrooge? And perhaps you are one of those who likes to be right in the middle of everything: shopping, running, visiting, cooking, eating, etc.
We all need to be SOMEWHAT into this wonderful season because we've all been blessed by God.
Let me suggest some seasonal things for us to do.
1 - 'Tis the season for singing
2 - 'Tis the season for sharing
3 - 'Tis the season for serving
Point I. 'TIS THE SEASON FOR SINGING
Illustration: Christian author, C. S. Lewis wrote: I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment.
It is not out of compliment that lovers keep on telling one another how beautiful they are; the delight is incomplete till it is expressed.
Point II. 'TIS THE SEASON FOR SHARING
Proverbs 22:9 "A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor."
Instead of wanting more, we should share what we have! As we share what God has given us He will take care of us. When we seek the Lord and seek to do His will in our lives He will take care of us. But we need to be thinking about how we can share with others.
Point III. 'TIS THE SEASON FOR SERVING
Galatians 5:13 "You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love."
It's the season. It's always the season for doing good.
Galatians 6:10 "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
