A Most Unusual Christmas Tree

I am the vine, ye are the branches…—John 15:5 (KJV)

NORMAN VINCENT PEALE wrote about the most unusual Christmas tree he had ever seen, a lime tree that had been rescued from the trash by a church in Florida, whose congregation spray painted white and decorated with scraps of Scripture that had blessed their lives. Named the “Blessing Tree” people came from all over to read from the branches and be inspired. Dr. Peale asked each of us to reflect on how we might be the branches of God’s love.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, show me how I can share the many blessings You have given me.
