Well well well. It was a busyness business December, except for the last few weeks. Thank God for the rest and sleep.

Christmas has come and gone (hopefully not in our hearts) and in a few hours, we shall close the 2013 book, and usher in 2014.

No serious investment updates for now, we can reserve that for next year. For now, let us relax and reflect on the last installment of this year’s Daily Bread challenge.

Day Bite-size Gist
“Sheep get to be like their Shepherd, it is said, but slowly.” – J.R.R. Tolkien. Becoming Christlike is a not accomplished in a moment, but a lifetime, through faith.
Joy is fruit of the Spirit, regardless of the circumstances. We don’t need a worldly excuse to be joyful.
God wants us to obey, from our hearts, not from fear of punishment.
Christ’s soldiers fight best on their knees.
Bending down to lift another is a good exercise for the heart.
The best way to know the will of God is to say “I will” to God.
The joy of Christmas is Jesus, not the gifts we gave or we received.
We are never strong enough to handle life on our own. We have God and our loved ones to help us through.
Jesus came not for the religious, but for the sinners and outcasts.
We are ambassadors of and for Christ, we represent Him whenever wherever.
Don’t be a selective practicing Christian, don’t fall for home-made religion. Test everything via the Word of God.
Is this true in your life? — Christ has been detached from Christmas and the season is now apparently just a time for being kind and ensuring the no one is lonely.
On ageing: Everyday can be a good beginning toward good old age.
What sin has twisted, God’s grace can straighten.
For the lonely, our presence may help but it is never enough. But we can remind the lonely of Jesus as Emmanuel, God is with us.
The exercise of mercy begins in the pains of self-sacrifice, but it soon bears fruit in inward peace and gladness.
Our Lord humbled himself, dwelt among us, in an effort to win our love.
People will not be judged by the way we see them, but by way God sees them.
God’s dawn of deliverance often comes when the hour of trial is darkest.
In spite of the many difficulties and trials, focus on Christ and His blessings.
God gave us His Son to give us His Peace.
A world without Christ will be a world without Hope.
Without the Light of Jesus, we would be in the dark about God.
Every Christmas is a chance for us to look at Jesus’s birth with new eyes of faith and understanding.
God fulfills all His promises. Even a promised Son. Especially a promised Son.
It never pays to take what God has not given us. Let us not waste our lives chasing things that leave Him out and leave us empty.
Religion and reality can co-exist, if we let it and do it and live it.
Jesus loves sinners. Do we?
Is what you’re living for worth dying for?
God’s judgement may not be immediate, but it is inevitable. God is never late. God’s timing is perfect.
The Bible: The more you read it, the more you love it. The more you love it, the more you read it.

2013 was great. Cheers to an awesome 2014! Cheers to a stronger faith in 2014!
