I’m dancing and typing!!! Okay not really but I’m super excited! Its two days to Christmas … Two days to eating Christmas rice … Two days to opening presents (or maybe three for the boxing day gift unwrappers :D)!!!
We’re all in the Christmas mood by now I’m sure, no matter how ‘un-Christmassy’ our environments are. Family’s getting together, gifts are being wrapped and hidden, last minute Christmas shopping’s being done as well! So let’s continue our countdown …
Gifts! Gifts!! Gifts!!! That’s what we’ll talk about today. I’m sure most of us are done Christmas gift shopping – I am!!! So let’s review who’s on the list?
Taking a careful look at your list of recipients, I’m sure most of us would notice it included mostly family members and friends – people who were sure to give you a gift as well. It has become a normal thing for us to buy things for only those who can get us gifts back. This has to change!!! We often give expecting something and it has become so much so a part of most of us that we don’t even do it consciously anymore. Shops are still open if you have to quickly run out now but make sure you’re not excluding someone you should be giving something just because the person may not be able to give you in return.
But most importantly, I believe we shouldn’t forget the birthday boy!!! Give Jesus a very handsome gift … Let’s challenge ourselves – Give Him a gift in proportion to the way God has blessed you!!!
So this Christmas, don’t show up before the Lord empty-handed; bring a gift for the birthday boy!!!
