The world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller – Proverbs 11:24 b (MSG)
It’s so easy in the Christmas season to get so excited about presents. You probably made a list of all the stuff you wanted from your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
And you’re getting really excited to see how much of those things you’re going to get.
Getting is certainly a fun part of Christmas, and there’s nothing wrong with receiving gifts from others. However, sometimes we let all the getting stuff consume us.
So this Christmas season, check your heart. Yes, it’s great to get things, but what about giving?
Is there someone you could give to? Maybe you don’t have tons of money, but could you give your mom a night off from doing the dishes? Give your brother the choice of what to watch on TV at night?
Today’s Challenge: Practice Giving
Ask God for help to find creative ways you can give to others this Christmas. Think of how you could go out of your way to make Christmas special for others too.
As you practice giving, it will help you be happier and more thankful for what you have. So decide to be a giver this Christmas.
