God loves to give good gifts and do good things for people. Some go to great lengths making excuses, always rationalizing why it’s OK to refuse those gifts and reject this gracious Giver. Christ invited you to gather with the rest of us poor, crippled, blind and lame people as we receive His good gifts with thanksgiving. That’s all the excuse to show up you’ll ever need.
