What? You don’t have all your Christmas gifts purchased? What to give? Dr. Charles Swindoll, in his book “Seasons of Life” has a few ideas. Among them-encourage an older person. Write a long overdue love note to someone dear to you. Release a grudge. Share a smile. Find the time to keep a promise you have made. Forgive an enemy. Make an apology if you were wrong. Offer to babysit for a tired mother. Turn the television off and talk to someone. Seek out a forgotten friend. Gladden the heart of some child. Yes, Christmas is a time for giving. God set the great example. We read, “God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus is God’s Christmas gift to all who are willing to receive Christ into their lives, while recognizing their spiritual bankruptcy and need of His forgiveness.
