I bet you’re all busy shopping last minute..but in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, may we never forget why we give.
We give because it’s exactly what Christ did for us. I know you probably hear this often, but giving becomes so much more meaningful and less of a chore when we have this in mind. In fact it makes us want to give even more.
Admittedly, I’m one of those who love to receive gifts just as much as I enjoy giving them. I mean really! Gifts are awesome!
But something changed just a bit this year, when people ask me what I want for Christmas.. I think, Yes there are probably a few material things I want.. But what’s really in my heart is everything for my family.
Oh boy, I feel like I’m being a little too cheesy and emotional..but really, I’ve come to a point where all I want is perfect health, wholeness, happiness ,and provision for them to have a comfortable life.. All my petty wants can wait.
And you know what, it just struck me- this is exactly how my Lord Jesus feels about you and I.
What an awesome feeling this is!
So as we count the hours ’till Christmas … may you have the happiest and merriest one yet…I wish you only better and brighter things for the coming year.
From my growing family and i…
God bless you always!!!
Merry, Merry Christmas!
