Kelly Carr, editor of the Lookout magazine, writes about a friend of hers who visited with a minister toward the end of summer. Entering the office, he noticed a decorated Christmas tree in the corner. When asked about the tree, the minister explained that he kept the tree up in his office year- round as a reminder of how God came to earth in response to our need for salvation.
It is not just in December that we need to be reminded of God’s love. We need to maintain a sense of gratitude all year long.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”—John 3:16.
