Dec 20 – Gifts for Christmas

Christmas is just a few days away, and you don’t have all your presents for your loved ones yet? Well here are some ideas. Author Dr. Charles Swindoll, in his book “Seasons of Life” suggests a list of things to give away this Christmas. Some of his suggestions are- Give encouragement to an older person. Write a long overdue love note to someone dear. Release a grudge. Find the time to keep a promise. Forgive an enemy. Give an apology if you were wrong. Offer to babysit for a tired mother. Gladden the heard of some child. Yes, Christmas is a time of giving. But some gifts cannot be bought, they involve giving yourself. Jesus, God’s Son gave Himself on the cross to open the door to heaven for you and me. What a gift. “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
