My son, Jeremy, loves animated movies so much that we’ve seen “Muppet’s Christmas Carol” countless times. As the movie develops you quickly realize that Scrooge has no interest in generosity or Christmas.
When Kermit the Frog asks Scrooge about the staff having off Christmas Day, Scrooge is incredulous. He cannot believe that his business should stop for even one day!
Fortunately, Scrooge has an encounter that changes his heart and releases a newfound generosity that spills over to his employees.
Deuteronomy 15:10 speaks about the needy, “Givegenerously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this theLordyour God will bless you in all your work.”
If there’s ever a day to be generous to your staff, and to those in need, today’s the day.
