What is in a Gift?

By   •   December 23   •   Topics: ,

To Christians the joy of Christmas is not limited to His birth. It is built even more on the triumph of His death and resurrection—that gave meaning to His birth. The mysterious spirit of generosity which possesses us at Christmas is the afterglow of Calvary. The fact of the cross illuminates this day and hallows it. As we exchange our gifts, let us remember that they are symbolic of the unspeakable gift of God’s love.

I do not believe that Christians should be giving expensive gifts to each other. We should quietly give simple little gifts that are expressions of our love and devotion to the recipients. These gifts become symbolic of the gift of God’s love. How much money could be saved and invested in the Kingdom of God by thousands of Christian families every year if the true meaning of Christmas was observed.

    I have been blessed by giving to those in need this year instead of asking for anything. It makes me feel so happy to bring joy to others. Thank you, Lord, for your teachings to us.

    Amen! The. simplicity of the surroundings of Christ’s birth should create in us the awareness that the simple things in life are the ones which will leave a lasting impression forever in our lives…..
