Do you remember How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the way the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes that day? Maybe you’ve been caught up in that large heart for the world feeling only to have the frustration of realizing you can’t save everyone. Guess what. Here’s some good news. You can have that big heart and serve others. You are not expected to save everyone? You are not expected to save anyone. We can’t. Only Jesus Christ can. Jesus Christ already hung on the cross and died to save all of us. The good news is there is still plenty to do. There are plenty of opportunities to speak the gospel at all times and when necessary use words. Thanksgiving is a perfect time to remember this simple truth. God love you. So go out there and share God’s love with others. Just remember you aren’t going to save them, but if you show them God that’s enough. Try thinking about that when you’re in line for Black Friday shopping.
