As we enter the Christmas stretch people are rushing out to get those last minute gifts. Lines are packed, minds are stressed, and many are anxious about the gifts they are giving and receiving
To provide a retreat from the materialism of our day and in and effort to refocus on the ultimate gift of Christmas – the baby who was and is the provision of hope for the world – I want to offer three alternative gifts ideas. These gifts won’t gain merit or acclaim from those around you, you won’t be able to have the privilege of offering these gifts to your friends and family, they are gifts that will be noticed by few in your life, but that will effect many.
I know that money may be tight and the fervor of the Christmas season is accelerating, but we must remember that what we have is not ours, but the Lord’s.
