From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 12/22/14:
I ask you, what can we possibly give to the Lord this Christmastime?
Considering all that He has done and is doing for us, there is something
that we might give Him in return. Christ's great gift to us was His life
and sacrifice. Should that not then be our small gift to Him-our lives
and sacrifices, not only now but in the future?
