Monday December 21, 2015 “Courtesy”

Matthew 2:1-2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
This being Christmas week we will concentrate on the Christmas story in the Bible for our prayer points. In this text the Wise Men asked a question of King Herod. As far as we can tell they were courteous and respectful.
Let us pray today that Americans, especially Christians, will be kind and courteous toward store clerks (associates), the Post Office employees and others as we do our last minute shopping.
Making demands and complaints fail to bring the fingerprint of God into the marketplace, even if you are right.
