Thanks Bro Arnaldo.

Recently I heard of a man in India who, propelled with helping the needy in
a remote village, has retired to that place and volunteers full time. His
son who is now in the USA, wanted him to visit him in the US. The father
told the son to send him the money that would have been spent in airfare so
that the money could be better spent in the small village. Here was a man
who saw a more effective way of using the money.

Yes, I do agree it is something to think about,
particularly in this period of Christmas and passage
to the New Year. So many artificial things going on,
and the spirit of sacrifice, which seems to be the
essence of that Christ-Jesus life, is so often not
even given consideration. May we avoid artificial
comemorations, and give real reflexion and serious
grateful reverence to Him  whose life is the mark
for this era.

Something to think about.
