While giving gifts is a nice way to honor those you love, perhaps there are even better ways to honor the birth of our Savior.
Let’s be honest here. Most of us already have our needs met, along
with a whole lot of wants. So is giving an associate another box of
handkerchiefs really a smart way to spend? Instead of giving to those
who already have, why not invest your money in those who could really
use your help?
Give to a church that cares for the needy or a charity and you could feed people who really need it this period.
reminds us that the Lord “cares for the orphans and widows.” This
Christmas and all year long, we have the opportunity to be the hands and
feet of Jesus to the helpless and hopeless. What better time than now
to start a family tradition of giving rather than receiving? And make
sure your giving includes your time as well as your money.
