Box Money

Reg Grant on December 27, 2009 in DTS Devotional

Do you know what today is? It’s Boxing Day, of course, the day after Christmas! In the early days of Christianity, it was customary for heads of houses to give small sums of money to their servants “to put into the charity box” at church on Christmas day. The day after Christmas, the priests would distribute the “box money” to the poor. Happy Boxing Day! “The one who is gracious to the poor lends to the LORD, and the LORD will repay him for his good deed.” (Prov. 19:17) We have received so much. Let’s look for an opportunity to give to someone who can’t give back. Happy Boxing Day!
