21 Days Of Christmas: Giving

Christmas is giving. Most Christmas cards have it all wrong. The Magi probably weren’t there that first night. But the spirit behind their actions certainly was present. Think about it. Remember John 3:16? “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,…” Jesus was God’s ultimate gift to humanity. We deserved nothing but God gave us everything. God gave us His best. God gave us His all. That’s something worth considering during this season. It’s easy to spend money. It’s easy to hand someone a tangible, physical present. But let me challenge each of us to follow the example of our heavenly Father this year. Give gifts that really mean something to the people you care about in your life. Give your love. Give your time. Give your life. Follow God’s example and give yourself.
