Just before Christmas an anonymous woman walked into the Wal-Mart in Mesa, Arizona, went up to the customer service desk and gave them $5000.00 with the instruction to pay off as many delinquent layaway orders as that amount would cover. The store cleared 30 orders. “When Wal-Mart employees began phoning customers who hadn’t been able to pay for Christmas gifts to tell them the news, the tears flowed.”
If the recipients felt so blessed, think of how blessed the donor was. Jesus said it is more blessed to give than receive.

Acts 20:35 (ESV) (35) In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
