It’s in the GIVING not the GETTING!

It’s in the giving and not the getting… 


Last minute shopping, trying to balance work, budgets, and the never-ending list of what must be done for the perfect Christmas seems to be the main things I am observing in others with a few days left before Christmas. 


It’s very hard to get the perfect gift for everyone on your list. 


It seems there are all kinds of things still left in the stores but the one in Teal is out of stock or the XS size is no longer available. 


It’s so easy to get lost in the task of “getting in order to give” and forget why we have this season in the first place. 


He came to give His life for us so that we may have everlasting life through Him. 


Please take a minute today and remember that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. 


Perhaps the gray sweater won’t be so bad because Teal is no longer available. 


Perhaps it might be better to give of your heart and not just stuff…. 


Check your experience… 


“Giving, rather than getting, will become the guiding principle.” Big Book pg. 128 


Lord, let us give from our hearts with a motive to help instead of giving to get, AMEN. 


“Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do.” Deuteronomy 15:10 


Have a blessed day Y’all!
