For some people, this marks the beginning of the party season. From here through New Years it's just one weekend after another. Come January, the AA groups will be full of people who were caught driving drunk.
What can you do with Halloween?
Tonight our youth group is going to the peds unit of our local hospital. They are taking some gifts and toys for them to have.
Later some of our people are going door to door in our neighborhoods and giving treats to the people. It's a reverse trick or treat. We're giving instead of taking.
Halloween isn't about "us vs. them." It isn't about worshipping the devil or celebrating evil. As far as I can tell our world does that every day already. But you and I can take this day and use it to give the grace and love of Christ to someone.
What are you going to do?
PRAY: Dear Jesus, let my actions tell others about You every day. AMEN
PS. You'll start hearing Christmas music tomorrow somewhere.
