“Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”
Matthew 3:10

Do you bear good fruit for Jesus? Do you spend time in
prayer or do you waste it with mindless activity? Do you use your talent to help others or are you too busy? Do you use your treasure to support the Church or do you buy more things that go unused? Our time, talent and treasure are gifts from God. What we do with these gifts is our gift back to Him. What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season.
