To quote Charles Schulz, the creator of the comic strip Peanuts:
"Christmas is doing a little something extra
While reading my devotional from the YouVersion App (Which you can download here from this button) -
- I came across this little, thought-provoking nugget: "Gift giving is honorable, generous, and says, "You were on my mind."
We resemble our Heavenly Father when we offer gifts to others. It's normal and expected to give presents at Christmastime, but what if we were generous all the time? What if we gave to a friend in April just because? What if we contributed to a friend or cause in July? If we made giving a regular part of our lives, we might not have to focus so much on doing it during one month of the year."
As Charles Schulz says: "Christmas is doing a little something extra
Yes, yes it is, among many other things! Oh, how we love to shop, create and deliver our gifts. Oh, how we love to receive our presents.
Oh, how we love to celebrate and EAT with family and friends. Oh, how we love the special time of year. But, let us always remember that Giving has NO Season. Doesn't matter the size, shape, experience,
or cost of our gift,
there is always a REASON to give.
Think beyond ourselves.
Be a Blessing.
Change Lives. Give to Others.
