Two millennia ago we were blessed with the greatest religious gift believers have ever known. The arrival of Jesus and his teachings caused quite a stir and its consequences have continued to echo through to the present day. One of his teachings which was to become the cornerstone of how we should view not only both those closest to us and God himself is that of love and kindness.
It is that divine love that is the driving force which can move mountains or inspire a tiny act of compassion. Most importantly, it gives us the strength to face the day, to reach out for meaning and grasp it firmly. Faith in the lord and by extension in ourselves helps us persevere on the journey into a brighter hereafter, and a well thought-out Christian gift can strengthen that faith even more.
