Tis' the Season for Giving Gifts?

Tis' the season for giving gifts. Is that what the title says? Yes. It does, but that isn't entirely true, now is it?

As Christians, we not only think about the holiday as a time for spending with family or picking out the most thoughtful Christmas present we can find, but we also think about the birth of Christ. Which is what we should be thinking about.

More than 2000 years ago, God sent his only begotten son to earth to be born, grow into a man, and then endure the sins of the world as he died on the cross - the most loving gift of all.

So this Christmas, think about Christ giving his life because he loved us even before he knew us. Yes, he knew us before we were born, but he didn't have to die for us. He died because he loves us.

How Can We Be Like Christ?

Start by looking around you. Look at those in your community. Do you know someone who doesn't have heat? What about kids who won't have any presents? Does the child down the street go to school without a warm coat? Does the family next door have food?

Whether you know it or not, you are in a position to give just as Jesus did. Of course, we couldn't possibly come close to giving what he did, but we can pass on his love to others.

Make up your mind to pay that person's heating bill, drop off some presents to the kids who won't have any, buy that child a warm coat, or give the family next door a Christmas ham. Not only will they be blessed, so will you.

Merry Christmas and may God bless you this holiday season!
