Tonight’s Baccalaureate wnet very well. Our church has given Bibles to the Seniors for many, many years. Our new pastor worked with the other pastors and now we given them as part of the service which is really nice. I usually pass out any that are left. In the past I used to pass out all of the Bibles at school and this is definitely better.
It makes the gift more special for the Seniors and it is nice to have it a special part of the service.
It is interesting how many Seniors have returned in later years to tell me how much the Bible meant to them. I always treasure those comments.
It seems to me that we never know how someone will receive a gift, but we need to give it in the spirit in which it is intended and pray for God to use it for His glory.
Father, thank you for the way you use gifts to encourage others. Amen
