- Publisher Chapter One The Gift of Kindness Look for me throughout your day! I was hungry andyou fed me; I was thirsty and you gave merefreshments; I was a stranger and you showed mehospitality and made me feel welcome. You met myneeds when I needed clothes and looked after mewith TLC when I was sick. You sacrificed time andvisited me when I was in prison or shut-in. Don'tmiss the opportunities I place before you to meetme! Remember, whatever you do for one of theleast of these brothers of mine, you do for me. Love,Emmanuel, God with YouMatthew 25:35-40 Inspirational Message At this time of year, you are most certainly making a list andchecking it twice so you'll know what to look for when you goshopping. You do it every year. It's smart. Otherwise, you mightmiss someone or something you are supposed to remember. Thisyear, just so you won't forget, write this at the top of thelist: "Look for Jesus everywhere." If you look, you'll see Him. The spirit of Christ is everywhereduring the holidays. That's why we love this time of year somuch. That's why we hear the endless quotes and comments abouthow nice it would be if everyone could have the Christmas spiritall year long. It is during these weeks, between Thanksgiving andChristmas, that we experience the heart and spirit of Jesus. You can see Him in the extra expressions of courtesy and kindnessin some of your fellow shoppers. You can see Him on the road as aride is given to a cold and hungry hitchhiker trying to get hometo see his family. You'll recognize Him in hospital volunteershanding out gifts to seriously ill children, some of whom will goto be with Him before His birthday arrives. And there He is againin the smiles of those same children, as they receive theirgifts. Once you start noticing, you'll be amazed at all the shapes andforms he takes. His spirit is there in the bell ringers,soup-kitchen servers, carolers, and helpers of the homeless. He'sright there in the bright smile of an expectant child, the tearsof a proud mother, and the embrace between longing parents and aprodigal son or daughter who's been called home by a still smallvoice. And when you look into a mirror, don't be surprised if yousee the sparkle of His spirit staring back at you. Perhaps this is one item you can keep on your list all yearlong--"Look for Jesus everywhere." I expect to pass through this world but once;any good thing therefore that I can do, or anykindness that I can show to any fellow creature,let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it,for I shall not pass this way again. --John Wesley Seeing Jesus In 1962 I was preaching in Indianapolis, Indiana.
