Let's Give In Season Or Out Of Season

I remember a quote; "Love the unlovable, or there is no virtue in love at all." (Anybody correct me please. My memory is not that good.) Few years back, I risked going to a place where it needed to ride on a small wooden boat to get there. I brought a bag of groceries and gave it to a very needy family. I did it regularly. I just want to make them feel that somebody cares for them, that they are part of the community and loved.

During Christmas time, it has been a custom to most individuals to give gifts. We exchanged gifts. There are also those very fortunate people who gives gifts to those unfortunate people. And even those who confessed that they don't believe in God, they still do give Christmas gifts. Odd, huh?

God taught us to give in season or out of season. He added, to do good and not look for a reward. Not for glory or fame, just give freely for God's name. Let's do good to those who have nothing to give in return. The gospel of Luke says, "If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you?" Luke 6:33
